Good day, young Pomonans! This picture is of Judith Helton who will be with us this Saturday. Ms. Helton is a professional storyteller who specializes in Laura Ingalls Wilder. As you see, Ms. Helton dresses as they did in Laura's day and she tells Laura's stories as if she were Laura.
Her performance is "based on the LITTLE HOUSE books by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Presented by arrangements with the copyright owner, Little House Heritage trust."
Another reason we are pleased to have Ms. Helton is that she was friends with Clara Webber who was the first children's librarian here at PPL. Ms. Webber was responsible for having our children's room named after Laura Ingalls Wilder. Ms. Helton told me she recorded Ms. Webber remembering what it was like to convince others to name our room after Laura. But Ms. Webber did prevail! And we are glad that she did. Ms. Helton has agreed to give us a copy of that tape. Yee haw!!
