Laura Ingalls Wilder program to kick off History On Tap

The Crandon Public Library is excited to announce a new series of programming titled “History on Tap”.  History on Tap aims to provide engaging historical programs in a social setting for residents in Forest and surrounding counties. Our first History on Tap program is scheduled for Tuesday, Febraury 21st at 7:00 p.m. at the historic Hotel Crandon.  The program will feature a First Impressions presentation by Jessica Michna portraying an older, wiser Laura Ingalls Wilder.   

Generations of children and adults worldwide have been fascinated by the stories of Laura Ingalls Wilder. Her “Little House” series was the basis for a successful television series. But how did her life really evolve? What motivated her to put her experiences to paper?  In this presentation you will meet Mrs. Wilder, older, wiser and reflecting back on her life.  She will tell you her life story and how she came to produce her  literary works. 

 This program is free of charge and is open to all ages.  Complimentary snacks will be provided.  Alcholic and non-alchohlic beverages for sale.  History on Tap is sponsored in part by the Crandon Public Library, the Forest County Historical and Genealogical Society and the Hotel Crandon.  For more information, please contact Michelle @ the library.
