Update on the Ernest Hemingway Seminar
After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone this year’s scheduled seminar, “Hemingway in Africa,” to Sept. 9-11, 2021. We look forward to being able to host this incredible program at the Library when it is safe for everyone to join us.
For this fall, we are currently developing a smaller series of virtual programs to share with you the week of September 14, 2020. Registration will be required for these programs. Stay tuned for more information about this unique opportunity to engage with the Library’s Hemingway collection and with other like-minded lovers of literature.
If you’re interested in receiving more information, please register for the seminar waitlist to receive specific details about our virtual plans for September 2020.
This year’s seminar celebrates Hemingway in Africa, with an emphasis on the two short stories, The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber and The Snows of Kilimanjaro. For three days we will explore these texts and the history surrounding them through lectures, discussion, film, good food, and fellowship.
Our guest speakers will include Suzanne del Gizzo, Associate Professor of English at Chestnut Hill College and editor of the Hemingway Review, and Dr. Andrew Farah, author of Hemingway’s Brain.
