Save the Date: 16th International Cather Seminar, June 11-17, 2017

Tuesday, March 8, 2016

Mark your calendars for the next International Cather Seminar, scheduled for June 11-17, 2017, at Pittsburgh's Duquesne University. During Cather's ten years in Pittsburgh, she worked as an editor, teacher, reviewer, and freelance writer. As importantly, she collected friends and mixed with all sorts of Pittsburghers. She published extensively—not just hundreds of profiles and reviews, but more than thirty short stories, a collection of poetry, April Twilights (1903), and The Troll Garden, her first collection of stories. After moving to New York in 1906, she visited Pittsburgh until 1916, writing parts of several novels at the McClung residence. Despite the importance Pittsburgh played in her life, much remains undiscovered. This seminar seeks to further explore the influences of Pittsburgh on Cather’s life and career. More information will be released soon!
