🔴 Rare Book Cafe COFFEE BREAK No. 55: Rebecca Rego Barry on writing The Vanishing of Carolyn Wells


Writer and editor Rebecca Rego Barry joins us to share the intriguing inside story on how she came to pursue the backstory on Carolyn Wells, a once prominent and prolific author in the early 20th century who all but vanished from the public consciousness in the intervening decades.

It’s a fascinating story spurred by a journalist’s natural curiosity and a book lover’s discovery. Rebecca Rego Barry was the longtime editor of Fine Books & Collections magazine and is now director of communications for The Raab Collection, a company that buys and sells historical autographs and documents.
