Today's Nancy Drew panel, door prizes, and Mildred Wirt Benson.

Today's noon panel that I'm moderating at the American Women Writers National Museum in Washington, DC, is particularly
appropriate. It's on "Derring-Do and Nancy Drew Us In" (on the history and enduring appeal of this girl sleuth, with George-town's Leona Fisher; Mystery Loves Company's Kathy Harig; and University of Maryland-College Park's Ann Hudak, curator of the "Nancy Drew and Friends" exhibition) and takes place on the birthday of Mildred Wirt Benson (1905–2002), who wrote the first seven Nancy Drew books as well as numerous other girls' series books. Kathy Harig promises some Nancy Drew door prizes for some lucky attendees.
