On today's show

An hour for lovers of all things "Laura."

Coming up this hour, the history (and art) of Laura Ingalls Wilder. We begin with an excerpt from the state historical society's podcast "History 605." Ben Jones talks with editor Nancy Tystad Koupal about the origins of the project and the relationship between Laura Wilder and her daughter Rose. Then, we go behind the scenes at the DeSmet Event Center Theatre for a radio play, recorded live, on December 11. It's "Laura's Christmas on the Prairie," and it's all ahead.
