Ask an Archivist, Converse with a Curator
June 21 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
This free monthly program allows visitors to see items from our collection that aren’t typically shown in our galleries. Speak with archivists and Museum staff in an informal setting about a specific topic each month.
The personal papers of Laura Ingalls Wilder and her daughter, Rose Wilder Lane are preserved at the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum. Wilder’s “Little House” books have charmed generations of readers with their vivid depictions of frontier life in the 1870s and 1880s. Join us as we discuss the facts and the fiction revealed in the letters, diaries, and manuscripts of Laura Ingalls Wilder and Rose Wilder Lane.
Staff will be available from 11 a.m.-12 p.m., and again from 2-3 p.m. CST. Registration is not required.
