Among those she interviewed was Naia Cucukov, one of “The Baby-Sitters Club” series producers.
“As an Asian American kid growing up having only seen depictions of nerds, geishas, the villain, having that extra layer of someone who could be aspirational was incredible,” Cucukov said.
“It speaks to her lasting contribution.”With 180 million copies in print worldwide, “The Baby-Sitters Club” books were a juggernaut during their 1986-2000 run.
They follow Claudia, Kristy, Mary Anne, Stacey and Dawn and their babysitting adventures in the fictional suburb of Stoneybrook, Connecticut.
The books are often credited with showcasing teenage girls as entrepreneurs.
