We're pairing with our local wine bar, On the Brix, to bring you a special autumn afternoon on the prairie! Take a guided bus tour of seven sites related to My Ántonia, with executive director Ashley Olson. You'll enjoy a tranquil ride through scenic countryside along the Divide as you hear the history and stories of the places related to Cather's classic novel. Take a peek inside the recently restored Pavelka Farmstead and learn about future plans for the site. Along the way, we'll enjoy three special drinks and tasty morsels.

Tickets include:

  • Bus transportation
  • Guided tour of seven locations related to My Ántonia
  • Three pairings of seasonal drinks and small bites
  • A commemorative edition of My Ántonia 

Bring a friend to share the day as you learn more about Cather's depiction of the people and places of Webster County.
