Description: West Virginia storyteller, actor and writer Karen Vuranch portrays Laura Ingalls Wilder, homesteader and author of the beloved Little House books in a living history performance that blends scholarly research and active dialogue. This portrayal spans Wilder’s life, as a child and young woman, as a young wife and mother who homesteaded with her husband, Almanzo, until a series of personal tragedies forced them to leave Dakota Territory, and as a farm wife in Missouri, when Wilder began to write for local papers and magazines. It was in Missouri, upon the urging of her daughter, widely-respected author Rose Wilder Lane that Wilder began to write accounts of her family’s life in what became the bestselling and beloved Little House books.
