Winter Greetings from the Cather Foundation

Winter Greetings from the Cather Foundation

Thursday, December 20, 2018

The Willa Cather Foundation Board of Governors and staff wish you all the joys of the season. This year's holiday card was reproduced from an undated Christmas card Willa Cather sent to her lifelong friend, Anna Sadilek Pavelka, the Webster County woman who inspired Cather's beloved character Ántonia. In the card, Cather wrote "Wishing Annie a Happy Christmas."

Like Willa Cather, we pause at year-end to remember our friends and thank them for their many kindnesses. The image at right is from the WCPM collection at the National Willa Cather Center. Please click on the thumbnail to view an enlarged image.
