990 Spring 2019 It’s Not Just Nancy: Other Girl Sleuths and Their Exploits
Wednesday, 2:15–3:40, May 1
Rose Gallery at Reston Community Center, Lake Anne
Instructors: Margaret Bercher, Catherine Noonan
Class limit: 80
Mystery readers know about Nancy Drew, but there were other girl detectives just as adventurous and just as clever. Reminisce about reading the adventures of some familiar friends like Connie Blair, Cherry Ames, Judy Bolton, and the Dana Girls.
Margaret Bercher graduated with an MLS from Texas Woman’s University. She began her career with Fairfax County Public Library (FCPL) as a children’s librarian. She is currently responsible for selecting adult fiction for FCPL and is certain that her love of mysteries began when she met friends like Nancy and Cherry. Catherine Noonan graduated with an MLS from Drexel University and is the branch manager at the Fairfax County Martha Washington Library. Reading all those mysteries has helped her solve many a puzzling and sometimes mysterious reference question.
