Så er det slut med “Det Lille Hus På Prærien!”

0 Shares

A national children’s librarian board voted unanimously Sunday to strip “Little House on the Prairie” author Laura Ingalls Wilder of her place of honor atop the board’s annual award because of what they called “concerns” over Wilder’s “stereotypical” portrayal of other races in her series of pioneer children’s books.

The Association of Library Service to Children’s (ALSC) board voted this weekend, at their annual conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, to change the title of their annual award for excellence in children’s literature to the “Children’s Literature Legacy Award” because, they claim, Wilder’s work “includes expressions of stereotypical attitudes inconsistent with ALSC’s core values.”

The change reportedly received a standing ovation from members of the Chicago-based organization.

The group also objected to Wilder’s works being widely read and promoted, claiming that the author’s “legacy is complex” and “not universally embraced,” despite her ubiquity.
