Ernest Hemingway’s birthday is right around the corner, and the Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park invites you to be part of the celebration, which honors his memory and commitment to the written word. On Sat., July 15, from 7 - 9 p.m. at the Hemingway Museum, we are hosting a lecture given by James McGrath Morris, the author of several biographies and works of nonfiction. His biography of Joseph Pulitzer was well received by literary critics.
Mr. Morris’ visit to Oak Park features a special presentation about his new book, “The Ambulance Drivers,” which tells the story of two aspiring writers – Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos – who met as ambulance drivers in World War I and later teamed up as journalists during the Spanish Civil War.
Copies of “The Ambulance Drivers” will be for sale at the event and Mr. Morris will be on hand to autograph your purchase. Refreshments will be served. Admission is complimentary. Donations are always appreciated. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday, July 13.
