We’ve gotten some questions lately about LauraPalooza aka the National Conference of the Laura Ingalls Wilder Legacy and Research Association and I wanted to clarify. So far we’ve held the conference twice, once in 2010 and once in 2012. Our original intention was to hold the conference every two years. However, we since realized that most of the Laura anniversary dates fall on odd years rather than even and we felt that would help publicity to be able to tie in, especially with Laura’s 150th Birthday celebration coming up in 2017. To move from even years to odd years we had to either had to hold an extra conference or skip an extra year. We decided to skip an extra year, so we are looking forward to holding the next conference in July 2015. We appreciate the support of Mankato and the Minnesota State University-Mankato through our first two conferences. Now we are ready for LauraPalooza to become a traveling conference. We don’t have a location confirmed yet for 2015. We’ll let you know more details when it gets closer.
As we’re coming up on the anniversary of last year’s LauraPalooza, so starting tomorrow check back each day to see what was going on a year ago as we were all in Mankato, Minnesota.
