Fans of Willa Cather, will find inspiration in “The Slow Read,” an exhibit featuring a rotation of 6 pages a day from “My Antonia”, from May 30 to Aug. 12, 2018 in the Adele Hall Learning Commons.
The Adele Hall Learning Commons is one of eight locations throughout the United States that will be featuring “The Slow Read” exhibit! You can follow along from www.slowread.org on your laptop, other devices or hopefully experience this at it was envisioned: in a public space with other readers present!

At the core of the exhibit is a desire to get people to SLOW DOWN and experience art/literature without the need for ‘spectacle’. To find community unexpectedly or to see it grow within an existing group (such as the Cather friends). To be encouraged to focus on smaller amounts of writing which may lead to deeper understanding or appreciation. To encourage discussion of the issues that are as important to us in 2018 as they were to Cather 100 years ago. To discover for the first time, to reread for the second time, to read again for the umpteenth time this gorgeous novel, bumping into friends or strangers in the process
