"My sister Mary is the reason I am a writer," said Laura Ingalls Wilder, author of the Little House books. Mary lost her sight at age 14, and Laura became her sister's eyes, describing the world so her sister could "see" as well.
Find out about Mary's richly rewarding life and the challenges she faced as a blind woman 100 years ago. Sing along with some of Pa's fiddle tunes, weave a beaded bracelet (the same as those Mary made for her sisters), and enjoy birthday cake made from Ma's recipe.
This event is free to the public, but space is limited so registration is required. Call 502-899-2213 by January 9 to register. For adults and children age 5 and up.
