Nancy Drew & Mildred Wirt Benson Event at Toledo-Lucas County Public Library

Nancy Drew Sleuths will be in Toledo, OH this week celebrating the 85th Anniversary of Nancy Drew and the 110th Anniversary of Mildred Wirt Benson. A big highlight of our mini con there is a library event at the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library downtown in the McMaster auditorium, on Saturday, May 30th. The program runs from 11:00am to 12:30pm and following that, there will be a ceremony for the Literary Landmark being dedicated to Benson for her writing career. I am currently writing a biography on Benson and will be speaking about her life and career as will Geoffrey Lapin, the man who discovered Benson, the original Carolyn Keene, back in the 1960s.

The above video was put together by the library to highlight the event.
