Published 100 years ago, "O Pioneers!", the featured book for One Book One Nebraska 2013, is about Alexandra Bergson and others on the Nebraska prairie where Cather lived. "O Pioneers," considered Cather's break-through work of fiction, followed years of writing, teaching in Pittsburgh, and editing in New York City.
Upcoming events include a movie about Cather, shown March 26 at the Florence branch, and more "O Pioneers!" discussions.
One Book One Nebraska began in 2005 with the selection of Cather's novel "My Antonia."
