  3. Virtual Presentation: "Around the Next Bend in the Road: The Life of Laura Ingalls Wilder"

    November 19, 2020, 6:00 PM

    In partnership with the Hoover Presidential Library and Museum, join Laura Ingalls Wilder in 1894 right before she arrives in Mansfield as she sits behind her writing desk. She is thinking back over her life and composing the very first article she ever wrote. The program is a historical musing set in Lamar, Missouri where Laura mailed off her report of their trip on the way down from De Smet, South Dakota to Mansfield, Missouri back to the De Smet News. She very proudly saved the resulting clipping with a note, “first thing I ever had published.” This program imagines Laura thinking back not only just about this current trip, but over her life as she sits down to write that famous summary of her trip, the diary from which would eventually be published in an edited version as On the Way Home. Speaker Sarah Uthoff has been studying and portraying Laura Ingalls Wilder for many years. Registration is now open.
