Laura Ingalls Wilder Award name change

posted by Randy - 

If you haven’t heard, yesterday it was announced that Laura Ingalls Wilder's name would be removed from a prestigious book award because of Racist themes. This is because of the portrayal of Native Americans in the Little house on the prairie books. I don’t know if this is right or wrong, the books were written to reflect the feelings and attitudes of the people at the time. The award has been known as the Laura Ingalls Wilder award and went to authors that impacted Children's literature. The new name will be the Children's literature legacy award.
