Interview with Donald Sobol, Encyclopedia Brown Author

October 20, 2007 12:00 am

He’s been solving cases for 25 cents plus expenses for over 40 years.

Edgar Award winning author Donald Sobol is here to talk all about Encyclopedia Brown, the kids detective series he’s been writing since it hit the shelves in 1963.

Listen in as we talk about how it all began, Encyclopedia’s influence on kids and pop culture, and why his rates are still so cheap.



  1. Dan says:

    That was a great interview of Donald Sobol and his Encyclopedia Brown series. I really enjoyed hearing him talk about it and the interviewer did a great job with his questions. I also really like the fact that the interviewer had history and knowledge of the books. That personal tie really made this interview great!

  2. Rebecca says:

    Thanks for posting this great interview! I will be sharing it with some of my library classes at school and I know they will love hearing it, too! I know most of my Encyclopedia Brown books will be checked out after this :)
