2:00 PM
Performance preceded by the annual meeting of the Friends of CLP-Squirrel Hill. In 1888, Willa Cather astounded her Nebraska neighbors with her brilliant mind and unconventional, cross-dressing ways. She said that "being a girl never damaged her ambition to become Pope or Emperor." She had a successful career in publishing, wrote best-selling novels like My Antonia and Death Comes for the Archbishop, winning a Pulitzer Prize in 1923.
