Melissa Gilbert, author and actor of the beloved t.v. show Little House on the Prairie, will visit the Iowa City Public Library to talk about her new book. In My Prairie Cookbook, Gilbert offers Little House fans comforting family recipes and childhood favorites, along with personal recollections and memorabilia. With answers to the most-asked questions from fans— on topics including the biggest bloopers, on-set romances, and what Michael Landon was really like — My Prairie Cookbook is a cherished memento for Little House fans and fans of simple prairie cooking alike.
Gilbert, in addition to her work as an actor and with the Screen Actors guild, is the author of the memoir Prairie Tale and the children’s book Daisy and Josephine.
