Laurapalooza Video List 2010

The first Laurapalooza burst onto Laura fandom July 14-17, 2010. This video blog is intended to share memories with those who did attend and give those who could not attend a glimpse into what it was like to attend.

For each part of the video below, I’ve added links and additional to the post, which in many cases has extra information, to the video itself, and give enough information that if you’re looking for something you can hopefully find it.

Mentions August 2013

BrandonIn August the Chicago Tribune included a lovely report by Sam Weller about his Laura Ingalls Wilder fandom. Weller is widely known for his work on Ray Bradbury. Find him on Twitter at: @Sam__Weller
The article includes a shout out to me: “There is a popular podcast, “Trundlebed Tales,” hosted and produced by Laura Ingalls Wilder scholar Sarah S. Uthoff.” LauraPalooza and Laura Days in Pepin also get shoutouts.

I listed these next two last month, but since both speaking engagements are coming up in September I wanted to repeat them.

Little Quilts on the Prairie

One of the vendors at the LauraPalooza conference was from right here in Iowa. Little Quilts on the Prairie is located in Polk City, Iowa. I haven’t gotten a chance to visit yet, but I enjoyed their vendor booth.

Sarah at LauraPalooza Made the News

Both these links have already appeared on Beyond Little House, but I’ve had some requests to add it here. So check out the mention of me in the Chicago Tribune article on LauraPalooza. Find a PDF on the author’s website:

Chicago’s WGN Morning News “What’s Happening” segment picked up on Cleaver’s Chicago Tribune story. I’m not mentioned by name, but a photo of me speaking at LauraPalooza is in the slideshow part at the end of the segment.

Home Again, Home Again, Jiggedity Jig

I’m really sorry that I didn’t get a lot posted yet about LauraPalooza and my follow up trips to Walnut Grove, Minnesota and De Smet, South Dakota. I was really too busy taking care of stuff. But I did take a ton of photos and video. I didn’t get a Roving Report podcast done, but I’m going to do one summing up the trip soon.

Thanks to everyone who helped and I was so glad to speak everyone. I’m looking forward to the next trip and keep an eye on this space.
