Program Description

Event Details

Willa Cather was one of the finest American authors in the school of realism. My Ántonia is widely considered the first literary masterpiece in her career. 

A work of historical fiction, it evokes an already bygone chapter in her own time, depicting the days of the early European settlement of America's Great Plains. Experience the travails and triumphs of the pioneering farmers whose greatest wealth was each other. 

Our guest discussion leader is Dr. Marilyn Atlas, Professor of English at Ohio University.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Athens Public Library.
