Virtual Birthday Party

Virtual Birthday Party

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Join the Willa Cather Foundation as we celebrate the birthday of one of the world's foremost authors, Willa Cather! In honor of Cather's 139th birthday on December 7th, the Foundation staff will host afternoon tea at the recently-restored Cather Second Home on December 8th and December 9th, from 3:00 - 4:30 pm. Enjoy elegant pastries, finger sandwiches, and desserts, as well as Cather-inspired entertainment and door prizes.

Adding to the fun, our board members are also hosting Cather birthday parties, each with a unique Cather twist!
