Book Burners Disappear ‘Laura Ingalls Wilder’ From Literary Award

Melissa Gilbert played Laura Ingles Wilder in Little House on the Prairie.

“This move by the children’s division of the American Library Association, the largest library association in the world, is yet another example of the left’s ongoing fascist crusade to erase history deemed offensive by 21st century standards; to figuratively burn books (and movies and art) through bans …”

(John Nolte – Breitbart)  The American Library Association has removed Laura Ingalls Wilder’s name from a major award based on how her iconic Little House on the Prairie novels portray minorities.

“This decision was made in consideration of the fact that Wilder’s legacy, as represented by her body of work, includes expressions of stereotypical attitudes inconsistent with ALSC’s core values of inclusiveness, integrity and respect, and responsiveness,” the Association for Library Service to Children said in a statement.

The vote to remove her name was unanimous. A standing ovation followed.

The award will now be called the Children’s Literature Legacy Award. View article →
