Happy Birthday Willa Cather

Happy Birthday Willa Cather

Monday, December 10, 2018

On December 7, we celebrated Willa Cather's birthday complete with a festive cake and an open house at the National Willa Cather Center. Visitors from near and far attended the events, with afternoon tours of Cather's Childhood Home and the National Willa Cather Center. Executive Director, Ashley Olson, discussed the spring 2018 passage of Nebraska legislative bills LB 379 and LB 807 and how these bills will contribute to a busy and important year ahead. 

As an added treat, the online Literary Hub posted an article on Willa Cather's birthday which discusses her eventful 1918 year.
