The Logan Library will be hosting a book discussion on Willa Cather's timeless pioneer novel, My Antonia. This discussion will be led by Dr. Steve Shively. There will also be food inspired by the book and door prizes for attendees.
This book is also part of our Fall Reading Program for Adults, and we're leading a community read of the book through the month of October. Copies of the book are available for checkout at the library either to read or listen.
