Featuring: Brad Bigelow, writer and editor of the website “Neglected Books” (

Mr. Bigelow is working on a biography of Faulkner for the U of Nebraska Press and has done extensive research on the papers of Faulkner and those of her colleague and partner, Professor Bernice Slote in the UNL Archives & Special Collections. He will discuss the role the two women played in leading scholarly work on Willa Cather — and the role that Cather played in Faulkner’s decision to end her own career as a writer.
Mr. Bigelow, currently living in Montana, has been a visiting scholar in Nebraska for four weeks as a recipient of a Nebraska Cather Collaborative Research Award funded by The Cather Project, Department of English, UNL.
