This Friday, two Utah State University English professors will be hosting a birthday party for writer Willa Cather. Ms. Cather will be unable to attend her 139th birthday party here in Logan, but her spirit will certainly be present.

UPR’s Ryan Cunningham talked to professors Evelyn Funda and Steve Shively about the birthday party and their affinity for Cather’s prose.

Celebrate Willa Cather's 139th birthday on Friday, December 7th, at St. John's Episcopal Church in Logan (85 E 100 N). Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m.
