March Book Club: My Antonia by Willa Cather

March Book Club: My Antonia by Willa Cather

In honor of Women’s History Month, The Alibi Bookshop Book Club will be discussing Willa Cather’s “My Antonia” Thursday, March 28th at 7pm.

Published in 1918, Willa Cather’s My Ántonia is considered one of the most significant American novels of the twentieth century. Set during the great migration west to settle the plains of the North American continent, the narrative follows Antonia Shimerda, a pioneer who comes to Nebraska as a child and grows with the country, inspiring a childhood friend, Jim Burden, to write her life story. The novel is important both for its literary aesthetic and as a portrayal of important aspects of American social ideals and history, particularly the centrality of migration to American culture.

Recently featured as “A Book That Shaped America” by The Library of Congress, this will be a great one to discuss for many reasons. Join us!
