Laura Ingalls Wilder

Laura Ingalls Wilder

Laura Ingalls Wilder is one of the best known and bestselling authors of the 20th century, and her life is as fascinating as her stories.

Our librarian Meredith Tomeo will guide you through Wilder’s turbulent frontier life during a special program at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, April 16 at Concord Township Community Center (7671 Auburn Road, Concord Township.)

Tomeo’s knowledge doesn’t just come from Wilder’s books. She has followed her path, visiting many of the places where Wilder lived and wrote about, including the proverbial Little House in the Big Woods, Little House on the Prairie, and the Shores of Silver Lake.

Tomeo’s talk is free to attend and open to all. The library only asks that you register beforehand. You can sign up by calling the community center at (440) 639-4650.

By the way, several of Wilder’s books (including her letters and autobiography) are available in our collection. Feel free to read (or re-read) them, if you wish. It’s a fun way to visit Wilder’s world before the program.
