children's book illustration
Honoring the first woman to win the Nobel Prize for Economics.
Elinor (Lin) Ostrom lived a life filled with hard work, travel, and friendship–breaking down barriers wherever she went. From overcoming a childhood stutter to emerging as a civil rights activist, Lin would go on to become the first woman and political scientist to win the Nobel Prize in Economics. This book was developed in collaboration with authors Scott Shackelford and Emily Castle of the Ostrom Workshop at Indiana University. Here's a look at the making of Lin's Uncommon Life!
You can get your own copy of the book online directly from the Indiana University Press or at Amazon or Barnes & Noble!
