NEWS – June, 2016–Ruth Suckow Memorial Association Celebrates 50 Years!

On Saturday, June 11, the Ruth Suckow Memorial Association will celebrate its 50th anniversary at the Cedar Fall  Public Library in Cedar Falls, IA.  The annual business meeting will begin at 10:00, but the public is invited to a program on Ruth’s literary legacy beginning at 1:00 PM.

“Suckow is Iowa’s Willa Cather,” according to long-time literature professor and Suckow scholar, Barbara Lounsberry.   Suckow published novels and short stories over the course of 35 years, between 1924 and 1959.   RLR has published a review of Suckow’s New Hope, Country People, and her short story, “Rural Community” (see “past articles and features”), and we orchestrated an on-line discussion of Country People, as well.

Without question, Suckow was an exceptional talent, providing a wonderful lens through which to study rural Midwestern farm and small-town life.
