Ms. Tripp is the author of many of the books in the American Girl series, an historical fiction series for young readers, ages seven to twelve. To research her characters' time periods -- Molly, 1944; Kit, 1934; Samantha, 1904; Josefina, 1824; and Felicity, 1774 -- Tripp reads extensively; consults with historians, curators, educators, and archivists; visits historical sites, museums, and libraries; and when possible, interviews women who were born at the same time as her characters.
