Further Details:

September 21, 2018 marks the centennial of the publication of Willa Cather’s beloved novel, My Ántonia. In celebration of this anniversary, the Willa Cather Archive at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, in partnership with the Willa Cather Foundation and a number of community organizations, is organizing a series of events across the state of Nebraska. The purpose of these events is not only to promote the study of Cather’s life and works within the larger community, but also to highlight the continued relevance of My Ántonia as a story that confronts contemporary issues, including immigration, religious difference, gender, class, and environmental preservation. These events are funded in part by Humanities Nebraska.

Follow along on Facebook as we travel throughout Nebraska and share our love of Willa Cather and her works.
