In Andal’s House Gallery

The illustrations on this gallery were created for In Andal’s House, written by Gloria Whelan and published by Sleeping Bear Press in 2013.

“Hall’s illustrations echo traditional Indian folk art, while Whelan deftly explains that the persistence of the caste system is mostly because of older individuals who won’t change. This book raises big questions about society and its norms that will challenge readers’ intellectual curiosity.”
