69th Annual Willa Cather Spring Conference
Our 69th Annual Willa Cather Spring Conference will celebrate Willa Cather and reading. Cather herself was an avid reader as well as a writer; she enjoyed sharing her book recommendations with friends, and she was pleased by hearing the comments of her own readers. From an early age, she established her “library,” with her books labeled and sometimes numbered in the back room of her father’s office. As our conference explores the many facets of Cather’s interactions with both her books and her readers, we hope attendees will be inspired to examine their own relationship to Cather's life and work.
The conference will begin Thursday, June 6 and conclude the evening of Saturday, June 8. Details regarding programs, registration, and speakers are forthcoming.
