"Girls" School Stories from the early 1900s to the 1970s

This month Rainy Day Books is alive with Bookworms. Not the wriggly kind but the 2 legged variety. There are several book collecting clubs in Melbourne and 2 of them sometimes meet at the bookshop. 

The Chalet club are collectors of the Elinor Brent Dyer series of boarding school stories set in Switzerland and The Abbey girls are collectors of the Elsie J Oxenham school stories set around a school and an abbey in Wycombe, England.

Both series are warm and uplifting and enjoyed by readers from 8-80.

Meryll has meeting, membership and club information at the shop and is happy to talk “school stories” with anyone who enjoyed them as a girl or who still enjoys them.
