The Mystery of Nancy Drew

Uncover the history of famed literary detective Nancy Drew. This program is part of the “Stories of DuPage” exhibit and program series supported by DuPage Foundation.

Ninety years ago, a plucky detective stepped out of her blue roadster and into the hearts of readers. The brainchild of publisher Edward Stratemeyer, Nancy Drew proved that a strong heroine with style and bravery could win huge popularity. Join historian Leslie Goddard, Ph.D., to explore the history of America’s favorite girl detective. Who was Carolyn Keene, author of the series? Why did this girls’ book series, more than any other, captivate generations of readers?
