Laura Ingalls Wilder portrayal  (Monthly Meetings)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Columbia: Boone Elec. Community Room
Kathleen Boswell grew up in Sedalia and was a big fan of Laura Ingalls Wilder from her childhood. Since then she has collected books by and about Laura and visited several of her home sites and the museum in Mansfield.
In the fall of 2018, she gave her first hour-long performance as Laura to a packed house at the Katy Depot in Sedalia. She has also created several shorter presentations, including ones for school children, churches and women's groups. She will also give a presentation on Friday, 8/9 at the State Fair Museum on the fairgrounds in Sedalia. Kathleen portrays Laura in 1947, when Almanzo was still alive and she knew her books were being reprinted with the artwork of Garth Williams, and that translations of the books had begun with German and Japanese.
