Anthony Del Col To Lead Reddit IAmA For Nancy Drew's 87th Birthday

Anthony Del Col, writer of the new Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys: The Big Lie series from Dynamite, will be participating in his first Reddit IAmA where he'll discuss the new series on April 28th, 2017, the 87th anniversary of Nancy Drew's debut! The IAma will begin at 1 p.m. Eastern time and run for two hours. Fans will be able to submit their questions or follow-along by visiting https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/.

Nancy Drew made her first appearance in print on April 28, 1930, when original publisher Grosset & Dunlap released The Secret of the Old Clock, The Hidden Staircase, and The Bungalow Mystery, the first three books to feature the character.

Writer Anthony Del Col says, "Instead of singing 'Happy Birthday' (trust me, you don't want to hear my singing voice), I'll instead say a few words about Nancy Drew: she's one of the most intelligent, driven, honest, and daring characters ever created," says Del Col. "In writing this new noir take on her, I've discovered the real reason that she's been popular for 87 years (87 years!) is that she's someone to be admired. We all wish we were a little more like Nancy Drew."

Del Col, whose Big Lie series launched in March, is the co-creator and co-writer of the acclaimed series Kill Shakespeare, which has been nominated for both Harvey and Joe Shuster Awards.
