Minnesota author Cindy Wilson, author of The Beautiful Snow, is the featured speaker. Wilson will share an introduction to the history of the Hard Winter of 1880-81 as found in the newspaper records of the time, along with some introductory context about Laura Ingalls Wilder's novel about the long winter. Wilson explores some of Wilder's struggles to convert her family's experience during those months into a full novel within the Little House series. The Beautiful Snow placed gold in the 2021 IPPY awards and was a finalist in the 2020 National Indie Excellence Awards.

A variety of authors will give panel presentations throughout the day with drawings for free books following each panel. The Author Directory page of the website contains dozens of participating authors and books available to order online. For a complete program listing and registration, visit:
