The World of Laura Ingalls Wilder – a talk & tasting with Marta McDowell

November 16, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

- $20

The universal appeal of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s books springs from a life lived in partnership with the land, on farms she and her family settled across the Northeast and Midwest.

Author Marta McDowell explores Wilder’s deep connection with the natural world, following the wagon trail of the beloved Little House series.  She’ll discuss Wilder’s life and inspirations, pinpoint the Ingalls and Wilder homestead claims on authentic archival maps, and talk about the growing cycle of plants and vegetables featured in the series.

The World of Laura Ingalls Wilder is a treasure for those enchanted by Wilder’s life.  We’ll have drinks and snacks inspired by Marta’s book, and enjoy having a chance to discuss our shared love of these beautiful stories.  Books will be available for sale and signing.  Tickets available at Brown Paper Tickets
