LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Organizers say the 15th International Cather Seminar will be held in two locations next month: Lincoln and Red Cloud.

The seminar celebrates the life and writing of Willa Cather, the renowned author of “My Antonia” and “O Pioneers,” who died in 1947.

Six of Cather’s novels contain references to Red Cloud, where she spent her early life, and she attended college and wrote for newspapers in Lincoln.

More than 70 scholars and students from several states and five countries will participate in the seminar, which is titled, “Cather and the Arts.” It will focus on Cather in interdisciplinary contexts, including theater, music and the visual arts. The seminar will be held June 5-12.

Call 866-731-7304 or go online at www.WillaCather.org or www.cather.unl.edu for more information.
