Willa Cather, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for literature in 1923, lived in Pittsburgh for six years (1898-1904) and worked as a teacher of English and Latin in Allegheny City (Northside) and as a journalist and editor. Her Pittsburgh stories, edited by Peter Oresick, were published by CMU press last fall. Cather returned often to Pittsburgh to write and visit her dear friend Isabel McClung, whose father was the judge at the trial of Alexander Berkman. She was also a friend of journalist and poet Arthur Burgoyne who reported extensively on the 1892 Homestead Strike.
The program will feature speakers talking about Cather’s works and her life in Pittsburgh.
