Cather and Friends
Introducing a new book club—Cather and Friends. This group will read and discuss the work of Willa Cather, her contemporaries, and fellow Nebraskans. Tea will be served, so bring your favorite cup. Please call 402-392-2877 to register or sign up at the store. We will begin with Cather’s 1923 novel, A Lost Lady (Vintage, $13.00). Cather's classic novel is a portrait of a talented woman trapped in the conventions and economic restraints of a marriage. It is the story of a woman who defies expectations, and whose personal changes coincide with the transforming American Frontier. In this work, Willa Cather expressed her profoundly modern feminist views in the life of an ordinary and gifted woman who is stifled by marriage. This mid-life work explores the themes of lost innocence, lost fortunes and indeed, lost beauty. Join us in this discussion.
