The Big Read 2015 (LEARN Center)

Join us in Andersen Library to discuss this year's Big Read selection - My Antonia by Willa Cather. When Willa Cather's editor first read the manuscript of My Antonia, he experienced "the most thrilling shock of recognition of the real thing" he had ever felt. Few books pack so much vibrantly genuine life into their pages as this classic novel of the American immigrant experience. My Antonia teems with romance, violence, tenderness, cruelty, comedy and tragedy - all bustling side by side in a narrative at once compassionate and gripping.

The LEARN Center will sponsor book club discussions.  To sign up and get a copy of the book, visit signup.uww.edu before Oct. 6, 2015.

Meeting dates include Nov. 3, 10, 17, 24 and Dec. 1 from 12:00-1:00pm.
