misc_none 12:00 PM  -  1:30 PM WWI and America: A Scholarly Book Discussion with Lt. Colonel Max Frazier Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Join us for a scholarly book discussion commemorating America's entrance into WWI through a reading of Willa Cather's One of Ours. The first 10 registrants receive complimentary copies of the book. Registration opens May 1.
 
About the book: One of Ours is the 1923 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Willa Cather's about the making of an American soldier. It tells the story of Claude Wheeler, a native Nebraskan, around the turn of the 20th century. The sensitive, restless, and unhappy protagonist has access to his family's fortune, but he refuses to accept it. Alienated from his uncaring father and pious mother and rejected by a wife whose only love is missionary work, Claude is an idealist without ideals. When the United States enters the Great War in 1917, Claude enlists in the army where he finds purpose and meaning in his life.
