The Story Behind the Stories. The House That Stratemeyer Built. Vintage Teen Age Super Sleuths

Via live streaming, Linda gave us a look at the "story behind the stories" of several vintage children's serial books. The new concept to create these serial books for children was conceived by Edward Stratemeyer whose idea was instantly accepted with enthusiasm. Many book series were published over the years. Maybe you have read some of them. At the end of her presentation, the minimal audience was tested on its super sleuth skills.
