Yours, Willa Cather


Yours, Willa Cather to premier on NET Television Monday, September 21st, 9:00 p.m.

Willa Cather wrote some of the most unforgettable fiction of the 20th century including the novels My Antonia and O Pioneers!  But the voice of the private Willa Cather tells a much more personal story. Until recently, many scholars believed that Nebraska author Willa Cather burned most of her letters before her death. Not so. In the new NET Television documentary and NET Radio series, the private person is revealed through letters that survived, hidden away in drawers, trunks and archives.

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold:  when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.              ~Charles Dickens, Great Expectations
