Who Am I? A Name Game of Literary Stars Knowledge Cards
With 48 fact-filled cards per package, Knowledge Cards are a great source of condensed information—all in a deck the size of a pack of playing cards. Size: 3¼ x 4 in.

Scan your bookshelves at home or check out the collection of your local library: chances are slim that you’ll locate any volumes by Cordwainer Bird, Cecil Smith, or Howard Allen O’Brien. Yet you can safely bet that some of their work is at hand. Like movie stars and musicians, many writers have renamed themselves for their art. Regardless of their chosen genre, writers for centuries have benefitted from the mystery of noms de plume.
On the fronts of these 48 cards are in most cases the given names of writers, with factual clues to help you guess their pen names. The backs reveal their aliases along with biographical sketches. You can study the cards solo or use them as a quiz game for reading or writing groups. Either way, A Name Game of Literary Stars, the third deck of the Who Am I? series, is educational and fun.
