I love the novels, short stories, and poetry of American writer Willa Cather. She may be best known for her beloved novel of the prairie, My Antonia
One hundred years have passed since the publication of this lovingly and well-written novel. The Willa Cather Foundation is remembering the novel with memories of the real life woman who partly inspired Cather to write about Antonia.
Only a book nerd would love this, and I love this. Cather’s fiction is not flashy or trashy or shocking; they are loving but realistic looks into the beauty and the desperation of life.

My Antonia was an excellent book! Love her writing style and the theme of friendship.
Yes, the theme of friendship. Sadly, I wonder if this could even be published today. I think I will re-read this soon! Thanks for your comment, Helen. Laura
