Nancy Drew Celebrates Her 80th Anniversary
By Jason Boog on Apr 28, 2010 , Galley Cat

Ever since this GalleyCat editor cracked a classic Nancy Drew book's yellow spine in the 1980s, we've been hooked on detective stories--from the Hardy Boys to Paul Auster.

Today's guest on the Morning Media Menu was Nancy Drew expert Jennifer Fisher--celebrating the 80th anniversary of the world's most famous girl detective (pictured in a fancy new edition). In 2000, Fisher founded Nancy Drew Sleuths, an organization of "American and international fans and scholars" dedicated to the 80-year-old detective. Fisher talked about the life of ghostwriters in the 1930s, fan conventions, and how authors can build community online and in the real world.
