De Smet was filled with even more Laura Ingalls Wilder fans than usual July 18, as attendees and presenters from the July 16-17 LauraPalooza educational and fan conference in Brookings   along with others, spent a day in the little town on the prairie. The Laura Ingalls Wilder Memorial Society hosted  “From Paintbrush to Pen — Meet the Artist and Editor of Pioneer Girl.”


“Pioneer Girl,” released in November 2014 by the South Dakota Historical Society Press has brought unprecedented success to the publishing company. The book was on the New York Times best seller list for four weeks.


Pamela Smith Hill, editor of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s annotated autobiography, “Pioneer Girl,” and Judy Thompson, the artist who created the book cover, gave presentations, answered questions and signed copies of “Pioneer Girl” at the event.
