From the Library – Classic Book Discussion Group Will Read Willa Cather’s “O, Pioneers!” in June 2022

The Classic Book Discussion Group will dig in to another English class favorite in June… Willa Cather’s O, Pioneers!:

BOOK DESCRIPTION: On the harsh and wild frontier of the American West, Alexandra Bergson struggles to fulfill her father’s dying wish of establishing his family on the Nebraska table lands. Through hard times and abundant, through love and loss, through joy and suffering, Alexandra challenges both her family and the land in her quiet, honest way. Cather’s realistic depiction of life on the prairie is anchored by a smart, strong, independent heroine and heart-achingly beautiful prose which evokes both the melancholy and the awe-inspiring beauty of middle America at the turn of the century.

An in-person discussion of O, Pioneers! will be held on Thursday, June 30, at 3:00 PM. If you’d like to attend, please register now through our Event Calendar.

Copies of O, Pioneers! are currently available on our 1st Floor on the Book Discussion Shelf (just behind our New Books shelves).

You can also download a copy of O, Pioneers! through Overdrive (as an ebook or an audiobook) or Hoopla (as an ebook or an audiobook).
