I am a big Willa Cather fan and can nerd-out about her until the cows come home. In 2012 I created the Willa Cather Novel Reading Challenge which you can read about here. I currently host the Willa Cather Book Club which meets quarterly in South Windsor, CT. Check it out here.
As much as I love Cather, I’m not naturally drawn to reading short fiction, so in 2019 I set out to read all of Cather’s short fiction, one story a month, and invited other readers to join me. We read one story a month and you can learn about that reading challenge here.
If you’re not yet tired of me talking about Cather, I made a video for my friend Shaun’s YouTube channel about how I got into Cather and her novels which you ca can watch here.
