Laura Ingalls Wilder
Birth: February 7, 1867
Death: February 10, 1957
It’s her 145th birthday!
You know her because – she wrote the hugely popular Laura Ingalls Wilder books about her childhood. Who hasn’t heard of Laura and Mary and their good old bulldog, Jack?
I think our books used to look like that...but now they have been greatly loved, and don't look quite as nice as at first.
