by Marden Dahlstedt "During the disastrous flood of 1889 in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, a spoiled teen-age girl learns to accept responsibility as she and her companions search for their families and friends."
Dahlstedt obtained her bachelor’s degree at Chatham College in 1942, and a Certificate in High School Librarianship at Slippery Rock State College in 1965.
Dahlstedt began her library career at West Deer Junior High School, Cheswick, Pennsylvania, in 1964, moving to Beach Haven Elementary School, New Jersey, in 1971. She also worked as director of the Beach Haven Public Library beginning in 1978. She was co-owner with her husband, Richard Robert Dahlstedt, of The Attic, an antique shop located in Beach Haven Gardens.
Dahlstedt’s first book, the children’s novel The Terrible Wave, was published by Coward-McCann in 1972 and was followed by two more novels for the juvenile market, Shadow of the Lighthouse (1974) and The Stopping Place (1976). She also penned a column on antiques, “The Corner Cupboard,” for the local newspaper, the Beach Haven Times.
Dahlstedt was married to Richard Robert Dahlstedt.
