Nancy Drew Presentation by Susan Becker

Join us as we explore the beginnings of America’s favorite girl detective with Susan Becker. Spunky, curious, and more fearless than she should be, Nancy Drew burst on the scene in 1930 and was an immediate success with girls yearning for a feminist role model before they even knew they wanted one! Nancy continues to be read today, more than 80 years since her creation. The story of Nancy’s creator is just as fascinating; Edward Stratemeyer was a creative and masterful storyteller as well as a marketing genius.
