Off to the Nancy Drew Convention: Boston, May 28 – June 2nd, 2013!

28 May

ND Sleuth Convention 2013Today I’m winging my way to Boston to retrace the steps of Nancy Drew in her 27th Mystery, The Secret of the Wooden Lady, set in Boston and Cape Cod. So excited! Activities will include  book hunting — I’m trying to collect all 56 copies of the original picture hardcovers — visits to the Louisa May Alcott house and Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Concord, a tour of Salem (that includes saling on a Clipper Ship), a tour of Provincetown, a clambake and ‘Sleuth Survivor’ event, and guest speakers that include Ruth Sanderson,the illustrator of the series when it went to paperback in 1979 with #57 onward. I will also be conducting a virtual ‘Foodie Tour’ of Wooden Lady, since no Nancy Drew Mystery is complete without detailed descriptions of meals. The week will finish up with a Mystery Dinner Banquet, costume contest and gift exchange. 

Check out my Twitter page for daily updates on our activities, and I’ll see you back here next week!

    Almost makes me wish I decided to go. Husband has been having weekly treatments of wounds and it would not have been a good idea to go so far.
