SALISBURY — Middle-school students quizzed author Ann M. Martin about her work at Salisbury Central School on Friday, Sept. 7.

Martin is best known for her series, “The Baby-Sitters’ Club.”  She wrote 35 books in the series before turning it over to other writers.

Including her 35 books entries, there are now 132 novels — more than 300 if titles in spin-off series are added to the total.
