To promote and encourage increased understanding and appreciation of the life, times, settings, and work of Willa Cather.
Programs: The 2010 Willa Cather Spring Conference, to be held June 3-5, will offer three days of events on the fresh topic of food and drink in Willa Cather's writing, based in Cather's "home town" of Red Cloud and the surrounding countryside. The conference will be held in Red Cloud and will open with a Scholars' Symposium, presenting papers on the conference topic. The following two days of events will feature a variety of events for Cather readers and scholars: lively discussions with Cather scholars, historians, and cooks; kitchen tours at Cather historic sites, with samplings of Cather-related foods; wine tastings, a keynote address by Professor Susan Meyer of Wellesley College, and a barn dance supper, based on Cather's Nebraska story, "The Bohemian Girl." O Pioneers! and "The Bohemian Girl" will be the featured texts for the conference, but discussions will range througout Cather's writing.
