Program Description

Program Details


Join us for an evening of readings to celebrate 150 years of Willa Cather, one of the most significant and treasured American writers of the 20th century.

Cather crystallized the spirit of the American West with a singular voice in her body of poems, essays, short stories, and the critically acclaimed novels One of Ours, O Pioneers!, The Song of the Lark, and My Ántonia.

In partnership with the Ames Writers Collective and the National Willa Cather Center, readers will be reacquainted, and new readers will be introduced to Cather's body of work. There will be birthday goodies as well as a book drawing. (Willa Cather’s birthday was December 7th.)
