Laura Ingalls Wilder expert Sarah Uthoff of Iowa City will bring to life the beloved writer of the “Little House” series, which turned into the Emmy-winning television series, “Little House on the Prairie.” Hear Laura reminisce about her young life as she prepares to leave De Smet, S. Dak., for the last time at age 27. She pores through an old trunk to see if there is anything that can be left behind. Each artifact she comes across in the old trunk holds a story — one story for each of the places Laura has lived. This free program is suitable for all ages.
