Fall Author Series: Erika Robuck, Hemingway's Girl
This fall the Hemingway Museum welcomes three authors of Hemingway works reading from and signing copies of their books:
Sept. 13, 7 p.m. Erika Robuck, Hemingway’s Girl
When Mariella is hired as a maid by Hemingway’s second wife, Pauline, she enters a rarified world of lavish, celebrity-filled dinner parties and elaborate off-island excursions.
Oct. 18, 7 p.m. Ruth Hawkins, Unbelievable Happiness and Final Sorrow: The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Marriage
Unbelievable Happiness and Final Sorrow paints a full picture of Pauline and the role she played in Ernest Hemingway's becoming one of our greatest literary figures.
Nov. 1, 7 p.m. Mark Cirino, Ernest Hemingway: Thought in Action
Hemingway’s focus on the modern mind, paralleling the interest in consciousness of Proust, Joyce, Woolf, Faulkner, & Henry James.
These events are free and open to the public. Advance reservations are not required. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Books will be sold in the Hemingway Museum bookstore before and after the events.
