Caroline: Little House Revisited by Sarah Miller
Book Chat & Wine — Friday, March 9
If you enjoyed reading the Little House on the Prairie books by Laura Ingalls Wilder as a girl, then author Sarah Miller’s book Caroline: Little House Revisited told from the perspective of Wilder’s mother, Caroline Quiner Ingalls, will be sure to capture your interest. A Ladies Night Out Book Chat about Miller’s book is set for Friday, March 9, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. in the Mount Prospect Historical Society Dietrich Friedrichs House Museum, located at 101 S. Maple St. The evening program is $15, which includes wine, coffee and light desserts. Attendance is limited to 20 people.
“Honestly, as a girl reading the original book series I never considered what making a home on the frontier was like for Caroline Ingalls,” said Michele Runde, member of the museum’s Living History committee. The book, which was written with the full approval of the Little House Heritage Trust, takes readers from the Big Woods in Wisconsin to the edge of the western frontier. “Miller’s book is very respectful of the original stories but moves deeper into the everyday reality faced by a pioneer woman. Leaving home in the 19th century came with the real possibility that you might not see your extended family again,” she said.
Caroline: Little House Revisited is published by Harper Collins and is available for order on Amazon. Mount Prospect Public Library also has the audiobook in its collection. To register through PayPal see below, or call 847/392-9006.
