It’s time for your FAVORITE Trundlebed Tales episode of the year. This is the episode where I ask you to call in live to my podcast and share:
- your favorite Laura Ingalls Wilder experience
- how you started loving Laura
- the most unusual thing you ever did as a Laura fan
- your yearly Laura based traditions
- or anything Laura related.
This year Laura Ingalls Wilder’s birthday will be on a Saturday so our show will be at 8 PM.
Call in at 1(877) 633-9389 from 8PM to 9PM. The number will only be good while the show is live.
If you miss the show live, click on the link above. It’s the same link to hear it in the archive.
Technology willing, I’ll also open a chat room during the program so you can also share that way. If you want to do that it will go easier if you go to http://www.blogtalkradio.com and create a free account before the show. You can also log in through Facebook. By request of several people last year, I’m going to stretch the episode to an hour so make sure you call in so I’m not faced with dead air.
If you have a story and want to share it before the program because you can’t do it live or don’t want to speak on air you can send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Discover Laura, the official blog of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Memorial Society in De Smet, South Dakota is also having a special program. They want you to take a photo of yourself with your favorite Laura book and share with them.
UPDATE: Find a second contest from Old World Wisconsin:
Post a picture of yourself in your Little House gear on our Facebook page and you could win a prize!
By special request from fans last year, I’m also going to be doing an Almanzo Wilder Birthday On Air Party so be sure to call into that with your favorite Almanzo related story. Call in on February 13, 2015 at 8 PM.

In honor of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s birthday last year I published a new LibGuide of resources to get you started researching Laura Ingalls Wilder. A LibGuide is a library tool that guides you to sources to get you started. I have used the sources in my Laura Ingalls Wilder pathfinder and added a few more. This will be a work in progress, so check it out.
