The Willa Cather Novel Reading Challenge
I’d love to see more people reading and talking about Willa Cather’s novels which is why I turned my personal plan of reading all twelve of Cather’s novels into a public reading challenge.
Below is a chronological list of links to the posts for the Willa Cather Novel Reading Challenge that I hosted in 2012. Each novel has two posts: an “introductory” post on the first day of the month and then a “thoughts & comments” post on the third Monday of the month.
If you’ve just found the challenge now, it’s never too late to take it on your own! For a chronological list of Cather’s novels check out post #1.
