I’m back in Connecticut after a couple unplanned weeks in Illinois helping out my mom. Thanks to those who’ve asked about her, she’s doing great. I’m busy getting my ducks back into their proverbial row so this month’s reminder for the Willa Cather Short Story Project is shorter than usual.
Our story this month is “Nanette: An Aside.” You can read it on the Willa Cather Archive here: https://cather.unl.edu/writings/shortfiction/ss035.
“Nanette: An Aside” was first published in the August 1897 edition of The Home Monthly. It is short, as asides often are. It comes in at 2,580 words.
Read “Nanette: An Aside” sometime this month and then come back to discuss it on the response post I’ll share on July 27, the fourth Wednesday of the month. Or, feel free to read it now and comment here if you can’t wait until then!
