I've posted some audio clips from my July 10th panel "Derring-Do and Nancy Drew Us In" at the American Women Writers National Museum:

• Leona Fisher (Georgetown University) on Mildred Wirt Benson and her often difficult relationship with the Stratemeyer Syndicate.

• Ann Hudak (curator, Nancy Drew & Friends exhibition, U-MD) reads a hilarious quote regarding the "dangers" of the Stratemeyer Syndicate.

• Kathy Harig (Mystery Loves Company, Oxford, MD) on Chassie West's involvement with the series.

• The panelists discuss the reactions of librarians and the public to the Nancy Drew series.
