Join us for our annual Laura Ingalls Wilder birthday party. Every year we ask people to call in and tell us their Laura story. So this year's celebration will be our 10th. Laura fans are invited to call in and share either the story of how they became a Laura Ingalls Wilder fan, their favorite Laura Ingalls Wilder related experience, or annual family traditions based on Laura. Based on requests, I'm continuing it as an hour so you'll have plenty of time to call in. So please call in. Sarah S. Uthoff is a nationally known Laura Ingalls Wilder authority and has presented at five Wilder homesites, the Hoover Presidential Library&Museum, many conferences &libraries, museums, &events around the Midwest Trundlebed Tales. Attend one of her programs, schedule one yourself, watch her videos, listen to her podcast, look at her photos, and find her on Facebook , Twitter , LinkedIn , and Academia.edu .
