Nellie Oleson sets the ‘Prairie’ on fire

Alison Arngrim, the bratty Nellie on everyone’s favorite show growing up, “Little House on the Prairie,” sinks her writing chops into a memoir, “Confessions Of A Prairie Bitch: How I Survived Nellie Oleson And Learned To Love Being Hated.”

She’s reading and signing the book today at Outwrite Bookstore & Coffeehouse starting at 7 p.m.

Arngrim became an HIV/AIDS activist after her friend Steve Tracy, who was gay, died of the disease in 1986. Tracy played Nellie Oleson’s husband Percival on “Little House on the Prairie.”

Arngrim has continued to do HIV/AIDS work and activism over the years, giving her status as a gay icon.
