All things Betsy-Tacy

Jan Fransen discusses Betsy-Tacy, the beloved set of semi-autobiographical books set in Minnesota by author Maud Hart Lovelace, on this installment of Read This Book! from the University of Minnesota Libraries.

Fransen reads from a copy of the original Betsy-Tacy (1940) that her mother read to her when she was a child. Fransen and host Lisa Von Drasek also discuss The Betsy-Tacy Companion: A Biography of Maud Hart Lovelace (1995), written by Sharla Scannell Whalen.

Fransen and Von Drasek also discuss the dedicated community of Betsy-Tacy readers, such as the Betsy-Tacy Society.

Fransen is the Service Lead for Researcher Information and Discovery Systems with the University of Minnesota Libraries.
