Normally I don’t take too many December bookings because that’s when bad weather tends to roll into Iowa. However, this year I do have two December bookings. One I’m very excited about is the Christmas Past event in West Branch, Iowa at the Herbert Hoover National Historic Site.
This video was made a few years ago at West Branch’s Christmas Past, they aren’t doing a Laura Ingalls Wilder exhibit at the Presidential Library this year, but otherwise it will give you an idea of what it’s like:
- Herbert Hoover National Historic Site – Christmas Past event – West Branch, Iowa –
Friday, Dec 6: Storytelling 6:30pm – 7:00 pm and 7:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Saturday, Dec 7 – Packing Up 6:00 pm – 6:30 pm 7:00 pm – 7:30 pm
- Anamosa Community Schools – Anamosa, Iowa – Packing Up – Dec. 9th 12:00 – 1:20 pm
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 already have a couple of bookings for 2014. Book me now. Learn more about the other programs I offer here:
