For those of you who love Laura Ingalls Wilder's books, you might enjoy taking a look at this site, Beyond Little House, which I learned about from Barbara Bietz over in Kidlitosphere. Yes, a group of hardcore Little House fans are going to hold an event called LauraPalooza next July in Mankato, Minnesota. There's even a call for papers--a call issued, of course, on Laura and Almanzo's wedding anniversary. Somehow, I suspect the Laura event will be accompanied by taffy instead of pot, calico instead of tie-dye, fiddles instead of electric guitars... Which just goes to show: children's book people know how to party!
