Willa Cather wrote some of the most unforgettable fiction of the 20th Century. She also wrote thousands of letters. People thought most had been burned. Not so.
In Yours, Willa Cather, we hear a voice different from that of Willa Cather the great novelist. Instead we meet a person who is vulnerable, funny and at times, ruthless. A fascinating woman who thoroughly mastered the art of letter writing.
You can dig deep into 11 letters—read the text, see some of the originals in Cather’s “difficult” handwriting, watch short videos, trace timelines. And you’ll learn the story behind each of the letters, in commentary written by Andy Jewell.
