LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Letters from Willa Cather, the renowned author of “My Antonia” and “O Pioneers,” are expected to be available online in January 2018.

The letters will be digitized under a grant of nearly $272,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities. “The Complete Letters of Willa Cather” will be published online as part of the Willa Cather Archive. The archive is a venture of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Center for Digital Research in the Humanities

Cather was born in 1873 in Virginia and lived there for nine years before moving with her family to Nebraska. The family resettled to Red Cloud in 1885. She graduated from the University of Nebraska in 1895. She died in 1947.
