Laura Ingalls Wilder: From Prairie to Page

Price — $0.00 – $12.00

Sat 18 Nov 2017 - Sun 1 Apr 2018

The American Writers Museum Roberta Rubin Writer's Room is hosting a temporary exhibit featuring the works of Laura Ingalls Wilder from November 18, 2017- Spring 2018

Laura Ingalls Wilder: From Praire to Page details Wilder's lifetime of writing and explores various themes, including Educated on the Move, which shows how the formal and informal education young Laura Ingalls received shaped the style of her writing, subject matter, and the values embedded in the Little House series. The popularity of the novels shaped American understanding of the time period, but often obscured the real woman behind the books. The first book in the Little House series was published when Wilder was 65 years old, but she had been writing since her adolescence. The exhibit will display the longhand manuscript of The Long Winter from the Detriot Public Library, reproduced typed Long Winter pages with handwritten notes by Laura Ingalls Wilder, merchandise, and memorabilia.
