The Torrance Public Library will host author and actress Alison Arngrim. Ms. Arngrim is better known to Little House on the Prairie fans as the meanest little girl in the West: Nellie Oleson. Ms. Arngrim's new book describes growing up in Hollywood with her eccentric parents: Thor Arngrim, a talent manager to Liberace and others, whose appetite for publicity was insatiable, and legendary voice actress Norma MacMillan, who played both Gumby and Casper the Friendly Ghost. She recalls her most cherished and often wickedly funny moments behind the scenes of Little House. Arngrim describes how Nellie Oleson taught her to be bold, daring, and determined, and how she is eternally grateful to have had the biggest little scoundrel on the prairie to show her the way.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase before and after the presentation.
