Virtual Author Series: Chris Harding Thornton

March 21 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT

The National Willa Cather Center is hosting an author series as a way to connect Cather to contemporary writers as well as provide an accessible and inclusive space where readers can talk directly with writers about their work. Participating authors discuss how they create their work, thematic connections within and outside of their texts, and and how our shared experiences inform the work.

Take a trip to 1930s Omaha and its fictionalized criminal past in Little Underworld, a new noir mystery from Nebraska novelist Chris Harding Thornton! Hear an excerpt from her book and learn more about how she drew from Omaha’s early 20th century history to create this twisty tale. As always, viewers are encouraged to ask questions and make literary connections during this early spring event.
