Author Valerie Tripp is best known for her American Girl book series for beloved characters such as Felicity, Josefina, Samantha, and Kit, who inspire young girls to use their imaginations. Her latest American Girl character, Maryellen, is a fun-loving girl growing up in Florida in the 1950s, whose adventures take her on a roadtrip around the country. Tripp calls writing for American Girl her “ideal job” because she gets to use her love of history to help children learn. Sponsored by Friends of the Burke Centre Library.
