New chapter surfaces in Laura Ingalls Wilder legacy


Laura Ingalls Wilder’s writing has sparked some controversy as a result of a recent decision by the American Library Association to strip her name from a prestigious children’s literature award. The decision has particular interest here as the “Little House on the Prairie” author has ties to our area with historic sites in Spring Valley and Burr Oak, which are connected by the Laura Ingalls Wilder Historic Highway that follows Highway 63 south of Rochester to 16 in Spring Valley to 52 near Preston to the Iowa border.

The decision was made by the board of the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division of the library association. The Laura Ingalls Wilder Award is now called the Children’s Literature Legacy Award.
