Authors @ Your Library Presents: Wendy McClure

7:00PM - 8:30PM Wendy McClure will discuss and sign her new book, "The Wilder Life: My Adventures in the Lost World of Little House on the Prairie."

For anyone who has ever wanted to step into the world of a favorite book, here is a pioneer pilgrimage, a tribute to Laura Ingalls Wilder, and a hilarious account of butter-churning obsession. McClure is always in pursuit of "the Laura experience." Along the way she comes to understand how Wilder's life and work have shaped our ideas about girlhood and the American West. "The Wilder Life" is a loving, irreverent, spirited tribute to a series of books that have inspired generations of American women. It is also an incredibly funny first-person account of obsessive reading, and a story about what happens when we reconnect with our childhood touchstones-and find that our old love has only deepened.

For all of those who loved Little House, this sounds like a worthwhile evening. The Schlafly location is in the central west end.
