  1. Oh how exciting!! My daughter will be thrilled -- we have gone to Laura Ingalls Wilder Day at the Village since it first began 2 years ago and we were thrilled to meet Allison Arngrim the first year, and Karen Grassle last year -- wonderful, wonderful event! My 9-year-old loves to try and guess who will be coming each year!

  2. Fantastic! I have attended the last two years, and agree that Alison and Karen were wonderful guests at the event; given his excellent documentary work, clearly Dean will not disappoint, either. Thank you so much for rounding out this wonderful new tradition with "Manly!" I am truly looking forward to the weekend...

  7. I'm very excited about this. I haven't been able to attend any of the events where Dean has been so far because I haven't had the freedom to travel there. This location is about 5 1/2 hours away from me, so it's definitely doable.

    Will Dean be there both days? I would like to make sure I'll get a chance to hear him speak.

    Thanks.
