Wisconsin Public Radio Laura Episode

The Joy Cardin Show celebrates all the Laura events going on in Wisconsin. Wendy McClure (author of The Wilder Life) is interviewed. They also talk with a representative of Old World Wisconsin about their Laura Ingalls Wilder Days. Stick with it through the polka radio station bit because after the break the first caller gives what I’ve found to be the more typical response of native peoples to the series.


It’s a good time of year to be a Laura Ingalls Wilder fan in Wisconsin, with several events commemorating her life taking place. Joy Cardin’s guest discusses her “obsession” with Wilder and the “Little House on the Prairie” series, her experiences with churning butter and grinding wheat by hand, and welcomes your favorite Wilder story. Plus, get a preview of “Laura Ingalls Wilder Days” at Old World Wisconsin in Eagle. Guests:
– Wendy McClure, a columnist for BUST Magazine, children’s book editor, and author of several books, including “The Wilder Life: My Adventures in the Lost World of Little House on the Prairie.” www.wendymclure.net
– 6:20 – Jennifer Van Haaften (HAF-ten), Curator of Interpretation, Old World Wisconsin. Laura Ingalls Wilder Days: http://wpr.org/r/?794
