I was really pleased that Laura Ingalls Wilder Remembered event this coming Monday at the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library made the National Archives Tumblr. It also went out under the Document of the Day Tumblr the archive does.

I was also impressed that whoever does their Twitter not only posted the link, but figured out I was the person in the story and tagged my Twitter handle in. Awesome job!

Come over and enjoy both my first person program and a very interesting prairie walk. Since the Laura part of the program was cancelled last year I took advantage to go on the prairie walk. It was a lovely walk over a mowed path as the guide pointed out different prairie plants, insects, and animals. I think you’ll enjoy it.

Here is the schedule for Labor Day, Monday, September 3, 2012:

9:30 – 11 am Prairie Walk
11 am – 12 noon – Laura Ingalls Wilder Program
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm – Laura Ingalls Wilder Program
3:00 – 4:30 pm – Prairie Walk

NOTE: I wanted to share a photo of me in costume at Hoover, but this was during their Laura Ingalls Wilder themed Christmas tree exhibit a couple of years ago, it isn’t currently on display.
