KUNM’s Susan Thom Loubet interviews author Sue Hallgarth about her Willa Cather and Edith Lewis mystery series

Sue Hallgarth shares Pulitzer Prize winning novelist Willa Cather’s little-known personal life through her mystery series. The second novel, Death Comes, is set in 1926 at Mabel Dodge Luhan’s compound and the D.H. Lawrence Ranch in northern New Mexico, where Cather worked on Death Comes for the Archbishop while staying in Luhan’s “pink adobe.” On the Rocks, the first book in the series, is set in 1929 on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, where Willa Cather and her life partner Edith Lewis kept a summer cottage. Check out Sue’s blog where she shares more of her research on Cather and Lewis that informs these novels.
