Non-NU Email I found the story inspiring, and it reinforces so much of why we support the humanities. When we teach or talk to book clubs or spread the word among friends or support libraries and museums, we can inspire talented people. I read the story yesterday from a link on the Cather Foundation Facebook page—like 5 Bank Street, a good source for all things Cather. Wishing good stories and good storytelling to all.

I wonder if that influence, for those of us deeply affected by the book, comes from explicit invitations to personal stories (like Jim Burden’s to the narrator) or from a more subliminal effect, such as we get from Jim’s visit to the Widow Steavens? Perhaps unknowable. Thanks for sharing, Andy.
