Confessions of a Prairie Bitch

I had the awesome opportunity last night to sell books for an Alison Arngrim event. For those of you who do not know, she played Nellie Oleson on Little House on the Prairie. This show was HUGE in my family. HUGE! Definitely a favorite.

When this event came around at our bookstore, I jumped at the chance to be a part of it. It was super relaxed and fun. She did her stand up bit in the bar and she signed autographs afterwards. I got to sit next to her and sell her book at the same time! A very fun evening!

I'm excited to read her book...totally surprised I haven't already. She had so many funny tales of her time on the show, little stories about Melissa Gilbert and Michael Landon. Some fun. Some dirty. It was a blast to hear.

Are you a fan of Little House on the Prairie? Anyone?

Happy Reading and as always,thanks for stopping by !

Looks like you two bonded! I was never that big of fan of the show (although I certainly watched it) but the book does sound like it'd be a lot of fun.

I liked the Little House series, but I didn't love it. I'm such a fan of Laura Ingalls Wilder and so much of the series was fabricated and it bugged me! I was surprised at how much I enjoyed Alison's book though. I'm usually turned off of profanity, but it wasn't gratituous here. I read Melissa Gilbert's book as well as Melissa Sue Anderson's book. I thought the Anderson book was quite sterile and Melissa Gilbert went for the shock value and wanted to shatter people's perceptions. I thought Alison's book was the most real. She simply brought the reader into her world to discover who she is.

What a fun evening you must have had!
