On the trail of Laura Ingalls Wilder

“You get brave by being brave.”

Kelly Kathleen Ferguson learned a lot while following in the footsteps of her favorite author, Laura Ingalls WilderAnd not all of it had to do with prairie life.

Ferguson visited us earlier this month to discuss her memoir, My Life as Laura: How I Searched for Laura Ingalls Wilder and Found Myself.

The funny and moving memoir tells Ferguson’s adventure of personal growth while tracing Laura’s path from Wisconsin to Minnesota, South Dakota to Missouri.

If you enjoy our author talks, then you’ll love the first ever Northcoast Writers’ Showcase on Saturday, April 28 at Lake Erie College in Painesville.

You’ll be able to interact with several authors and local publishers and attend workshops about the craft of writing.

Christina Baker Kline, author of the bestselling novel Orphan Train, will be the keynote speaker. And workshops will be led by Funky Winkerbean creator Tom Batiuk, detective-novel writer Les Roberts, and Dead Key and Unclaimed Victim author D.M. Pulley.

The event is free and open to all. Visit the Showcase’s site for more info, including participating authors and publishers.
