Pocatello’s Marshall Public Library, 113 South Garfield Avenue, celebrates the popular Little House on the Prairie series with guest speaker Dr. Janet Worthington and a presentation on Laura Ingalls Wilder Wednesday, October 21 at 7 p.m.
Dr. Janet Worthington has been presenting women and girls from history and literature for over 30 years. In period costume, she speaks as the noted woman and dramatically recounts her life experiences. She then answers questions both as the historic/literary figure and as herself.
She has presented in Virginia, West Virginia, New York, Louisiana, South Carolina, and throughout Idaho. In her beloved series of books for young people, Laura Ingalls Wilder portrayed pioneer life as an idyllic adventure, filled with warmth and love. As Laura, Janet Worthington recounts the westward movement and Pa’s consistent desire to find new lands, the hardships the family faced in each new location, and the joys of making a life in the wilderness. In addition, Janet as Laura presents tales of her husband’s youth in northern New York state.
This event is a family-friendly event. Refreshments will be served. There is no cost to attend this program. For more information on this event, contact Jamie Bair at 232-1263 x112 or visit Marshall Public Library’s Facebook page.
