Wednesday, October 24 plan to enjoy one of two book discussions on “My Antonia” by Willa Cather. Patty Kessler will lead the discussions. Kessler, a native of southeastern Wyoming, is a graduate of the American Studies Program at the University of Wyoming and an instructor of History and American Studies at Laramie County Community College–Albany County Campus. It has been almost twenty years since Willa Cather’s works fired her imagination and launched her into her graduate work in American Studies. The discussions will be held at either 3:30 or 6:30 p.m. The final discussion of “My Antonia” will be facilitated by Randy Rose on November 14.
