M is for Margaret Hill McCarter

This vintage Kansas author was a favorite of my mom as she remembered reading Price of the Prairie with her parents in the evenings before the time of radio and television.

She was delighted to discover that the author had been a member of Kansas Authors Club. When KAC encouraged its members to promote Kansas authors and to encourage school children in writing, Mom chose McCarter to promote.

She volunteered to visit local classrooms to give a first person presentation on the writer. Dressed in costume, she talked about what inspired her writing. Teachers loved the idea and the kids enjoyed a break from tests and assignments.
