October tends to be a quieter Laura Ingalls Wilder month. I only have one engagement for this month, but it’s one near and dear to my heart.
- Iowa City Park Cabin Fundraiser – October 19, 2013 1 pm – 3 pm
If you are in the area I truly hope you come out, the cabins are from the very early in the Iowa settlement period and were moved to the City Park during the Iowa City Centennial and they are near and dear to my heart. They were the home for many years of the Laura Ingalls Wilder daycamp program of the Johnson County (Iowa) Historical Society, but basic maintenance has been neglected for FAR too long and there isn’t city money to do the repair work that they need.
That’s it for this month so far; But it’s not too late. If you’d like me to come present near you make sure to tell your local library, museum or civic group. I’m really excited about my Thanksgiving programs. If you are looking for a Thanksgiving program, check them out. Learn more about the other programs I offer here:
