Celebrate a Classic: Laura Ingalls Wilder

Little House on the PrariePlan a book club or get-together in honor of a classic author!  February 7 was the birth date of Laura Ingalls Wilder (she was born in 1867).  Re-read Little House on the Prairie, and then swap frontier stories as you munch on a tasty tidbit from the Little House Cookbook (Fried Parsnips and Succotash, anyone?).  To add some hilarity to the event—and for an updated take on an old classic—read The Wilder Life: My Adventures in the Lost World of Little House on the PrairieJust try to hold back your laughter as you experience author Wendy McClure’s offbeat quest to rediscover the wonder of the novels by visiting the locations immortalized in the classic series.

“As you read my stories of long ago I hope you will remember that the things that are truly worthwhile and that will give you happiness are the same now as they were then. Courage and kindness, loyalty, truth, and helpfulness are always the same and always needed.”  ― Laura Ingalls Wilder
