This virtual presentation, by the Library’s January writer-in-resident at the historic Hemingway House, Nancy Sindelar, will tour the places Ernest Hemingway lived and worked: Oak Park, Illinois; Paris, France; Chamby, Switzerland; Toronto, Canada; Key West, Florida; San Francisco de Paula, Cuba; and Ketchum, Idaho. We will view photos of his houses and consider the impact these places had on the life and work of the legendary author.
Nancy W. Sindelar, Ph.D. has spent over 30 years in education as a teacher, administrator, university professor and consultant and has published numerous articles and three books on educational topics. She is also the author of “Influencing Hemingway,” a biography of Ernest Hemingway inspired by her time teaching in Oak Park, Illinois, and written to document how Hemingway’s early years and the people and places he was drawn to in his adult life contributed to his thoughts, actions, and writing.
