Join us on an excursion to one of the most famous villages in American Literature: Red Cloud, Neb., where author Willa Cather spent her childhood. Willa Cather Foundation staff will lead us on a special exploration of the life, times and work of Cather. The day will include a tour of Cather’s childhood home and other historic buildings, a catered lunch at the Red Cloud Opera House and an opportunity to stroll through the exhibits at the Cather Foundation. If the weather cooperates, we may even have a chance to enjoy a glass of wine and a fine May afternoon in downtown Red Cloud.
