About Sarah Uthoff and Trundlebed Tales

Ready to PresentHi, I’m Sarah S. Uthoff. I’m a respected authority on Laura Ingalls Wilder. I specialize in social history and am a popular speaker around the Midwest on both Wilder and One-Room Schools. Occasionally I also speak on outlying subjects like Genealogy and the Food History.

I’m actively involved with several national and regional organizations and serve as an officer in various capacities. I’m a I am social media chair of the the Country School Association of America’s official listserv and their Social Media chair. I’m Foodways Resource Chair for the Midwest Open Air Museum’s Coordinating Council or MOMCC.

My “real” job is as a reference librarian at Kirkwood Community College and  I formerly served as director of the Oxford (Iowa) Public Library,  so I’m always on the lookout for a new piece of research to share.  Take some time to explore this blog and also find my website:
