Birthday Party for Mary Ingalls

To celebrate National Braille Literacy Month, Museum of the American Printing House for the Blind, 1839 Frankfort Ave., will be holding a birthday party for Mary Ingalls, Jan. 12 from 10:30 to 12:30 p.m. “My sister Mary is the reason I am a writer,” said Laura Ingalls Wilder, the author of the Little House books. Mary lost her sight as a child, and Laura became her eyes, describing the world around her so her older sister could “see” as well. Come to the Museum to explore the sounds and smells, the textures and tastes, of Mary’s world. Learn all about her richly rewarding life as a teacher and musician and take a look at some of the books in her library. Sing along with some of Pa’s fiddle tunes, weave a beaded bracelet (the same as those Mary made for her sisters), and have some birthday cake made from Ma’s recipe. This event is for all ages and is free to the public but space is limited so registration is required. Call 502.899.2213 or send an email to kcarpenter@aph.org by Jan. 10 to register.
