The Albion Area Arts Council is pleased to bring UNL Associate Professor and Willa Cather scholar and author Andrew Jewell to Albion tomorrow, May 2nd, to discuss the native Nebraskan's novel, O Pioneers!. The discussion will take place at the UCC/Congregational Church in Albion beginning at 2:00 pm.
In April of 2013, Jewell published his book, The Selected Letters of Willa Cather, a collection of the famous author's private letters, which were opened up for the public for the first time recently. The book received national and international acclaim, and was listed among TIME Magazine's top 10 nonfiction books of 2013.
The magazine's editors heralded the book, describing it as “a robust volume that deepens our understanding of the novelist’s witty, tenacious and richly intelligent character. Whether Cather is joking with her family, pressing her publisher for a better dust jacket or despairing of the losses of World War II, her voice comes through on every page as a true American original.”
Make plans to join what is sure to be an enjoyable and enlightening afternoon in Albion.
