“Willa Cather’s Life in Letters”
May 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT
Celebrate the installation of Willa Cather’s statue in National Statuary Hall (June 2023) with a special online event featuring a member of the HN Speakers Bureau. Cather historian Andrew Jewell will present “Willa Cather’s Life in Letters.” Drawing on his experience co-editing the first book of Cather’s letters, this talk explores the way Cather used letters to communicate her ideas, maintain her relationships, and think through her life and experiences. Cather’s letters are being published for the first time in 2013, and this program features readings from the lively, but largely unread correspondence of the great American author.
