    Libertarians on the Prairie: Laura Ingalls Wilder, Rose Wilder Lane, and the Making of the Little House Books - author talk with Christine Woodside

    In this groundbreaking work of literary detection, author Christine Woodside reveals for the first time the full extent of the collaboration between Laura and her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane. Rose hated farming and fled the family home as an adolescent, eventually becoming a nationally prominent magazine writer, successful novelist, biographer of Herbert Hoover, and Danbury resident. Rose Wilder Lane even wrote some Little House drafts from her home on King Street in Danbury!

    Drawing on original manuscripts and letters, Woodside shows how Rose reshaped her mother's story into a series of heroic tales that rebutted the policies of the New Deal.

    As Seen in: THE NEW YORK TIMES, POLITICO, THE HISTORY CHANNEL and more!

    Books Will Be Available to Purchase.

    Christine Woodside is a writer and the editor of the journal Appalachia, the author of Energy Independence and editor of Living on an Acre and No Limits but the Sky. She has nourished a fascination with the Little House books since she was a girl. As a teenager, she applied for a summer job at the Laura Ingalls Wilder farmhouse in Mansfield, Missouri—but, residing in New Jersey, lived too far away. She lives in Deep River, Connecticut, with her husband.

    - The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. Our Task Force is a privately funded organization whose purpose is to encourage participation on the National Day of Prayer. It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, to create appropriate materials, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America’s leaders and its families. The Task Force represents a Judeo-Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.

    Book Presentation & Signing with Jack Kozuchowski
    Saturday, May 6
    10:30 AM – Noon
    Farioly Program Room

    Jack Kozuchowski was employed as Danbury’s Environmental Director from 1979-2006. He has devoted his retirement years to educating the public on the multidimensional aspects of climate change.
    Jack describes his book, “Climate Futures: Time Travels to Alternative Outcomes,” as “Science Faction” which uses an adventure story to convey science to the reader. The story involves the time travels of the main character to seven different futures. The consequence of the future behind each door depends upon what we do - or do not do - to address this challenge on our planet. It is also an open minded, non-political work that is intended to make readers consider what might be coming our way.
