Between the Lines Book Club: My Antonia

between the lines book club logoThis month our book club pick is My Antonia, by Willa Cather. This book was published in 1918, and tells about a community of farmers in Nebraska, both on their farms and in the small town of Black Hawk. The main characters are Jim Burden, and Antonia Shimerda, whose family recently immigrated from Bohemia. The book addresses immigration, social class, the role of women, and the nature of the American Midwest.

You can find an online study guide at and read more about Cather at American Masters. We will meet to discuss the book on September 22, 2018 at Arden Dimick Library!
