OK, so I know there are a lot of perks to owning The Girl Cave, but getting to meet the extraordinary Alison Arngrim (aka Nellie Oleson of Little House On The Prairie) has GOT to be at the top of my list of favorite experiences! It was truly an honor to have her speak at our venue this past weekend, and her open, honest, recounting of the tragic abuse she suffered as a child was absolutely compelling. Alison’s wonderful sense of humor, genuine compassion and many, many accomplishments prove that people truly can not only survive the most horrific of experiences, but in fact THRIVE and be a powerful force of positive change in the world.
If you are looking for a great read, be sure to pick up her NY Times bestselling book, Confessions Of A Prairie Bitch: How I Survived Nellie Oleson And Learned To Love Being Hated!
And if you weren’t fortunate enough to see her this time around, keep your fingers crossed, as she mentioned she would like to come back again!
