Landscapes and Human Spirit in Willa Cather’s Novel My Ántonia

Whether you’ve read this engaging novel or not, come, learn, and participate in conversation about how it explores the resilient human, pioneer spirit. Living at the turn of century and the rise of modernization, Willa Cather was sensitive to the losses endured by land and peoples. In her writing she lifted up the cultural jewels engendered from prairie-life and immigrant experience. One hundred years after the novel’s publication, we can reflect on how it speaks to us and our challenges today.
