Day 2 Laura Ingalls Wilder Conference 2017

And sadly yesterday was the last day of the South Dakota Historical Society’s annual conference. I’m so glad they tackled Laura Ingalls Wilder and I hope they return to the subject sometime. I’m going to be doing a further report linking to things later, but I wanted to go ahead and give you some of my top tweets. Find Day 1 here.

If you want to read all of the tweets for the conference search Twitter for #SDHeritage

I especially want to point out the Little House on the Prairie Twitter account since their phone has a much better camera than mine does.

Remember you don’t need to have a Twitter account to read tweets.

I’m not going to transfer all of the Tweets over, but here are some highlights.

There was some discussion of Laura and the Suffragette Movement and how some people are disappointed Laura wasn’t an active part of the movement.

And sadly at this point I had to leave. My mom recently had an operation and I had to get home Saturday night. Sadly I missed the Awards banquet and the final session which had all the speakers return for a session about Laura still being relevant.

  1. Sarah, I really enjoyed sitting with you on the first day of the conference! I hope all went well for your mom. I hope to meet up with you again in the future.

  2. Dear Sarah, Thank you so much for tweeting your thoughts throughout the SDHS Conference…..I was so disappointed to not be able to make it afterall. There’s so much going on in the LIW World this year, and we all love hearing and being a small part of the whole picture. Will miss you at LP17 – it won’t be the same for me without you.

    I hope your mom recovers quickly and well from surgery. You’re a good daughter to be there for her. Give her my greetings as I remember a very fun eveningon the farm several years ago. My dad’s stroke recovery has been slow and he is steadily declining rather than improving, so that’s where I needed to be – with my folks in Texas. We are blessed to have our parents so dear.

    Take care and thanks again.
