Willa Cather is now certainly regarded as one of the great American writers, a writer I re-connected with a couple of years ago, and I am now trying to read everything she wrote. I have read several of her novels already, have another five sitting here waiting to be read, but as yet have not read any of her short stories. A reading week therefore is just what I need to focus on reading some Cather, and share my enthusiasm for her work. I would love to get lots of people reading her novels and stories, talking about her and sharing thoughts about her books on blogs.I am not sure yet what I want to do. My Ántonia is on my CC list, so this is a nice opportunity, but the truth is that My Ántonia is a re-read and I have never read the other two books in the triad--or any other Cather, for that matter! So perhaps I should read O Pioneers! and/or The Song of the Lark. I'll get all of them out of the library and see what happens. I will certainly read something that week, though!
