The Stranger Than Fiction Book Club meets monthly for lively discussion of current nonfiction titles and topics. For our August 23 discussion, we will be reading Laura Ingalls Wilder's posthumously published Pioneer Girl: The Annotated Autobiography.
Pioneer Girl follows the Ingalls family's journey through Kansas, Missouri, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, back to Minnesota, and on to Dakota Territory sixteen years of travels, unforgettable experiences, and the everyday people who became immortal through Wilder's fiction. Using additional manuscripts, letters, photographs, newspapers, and other sources, award-winning Wilder biographer Pamela Smith Hill adds valuable context and leads readers through Wilder's growth as a writer. Do you think you know Laura?
