Christine Woodside will talk about her book, Libertarians on the Prairie: Laura Ingalls Wilder, Rose Wilder Lane, and the Making of the Little House Books. This myth-busting dual biography finally reveals the full extent of Rose Wilder Lane's work reshaping the books into an anti-New Deal, proto-Libertarian fable--and details the estrangement between the two women that resulted from this editing.

Christine Woodside is environmental writer and is the author of No Limits But the Sky: The Best Mountaineering Stories from Appalachia Journal, and Living on an Acre: A Practical Guide to the Self-Reliant Life.  She is the editor of Appalachia journal and  Connecticut Woodlands magazine.
