Ernest Hemingway is an American icon, but within that status, there are many depictions of the man including: Hemingway as the Nobel Prize-winning literary hero whose terse style became synonymous with his name; Hemingway the celebrity, who cavorted with film stars and romanced Marlene Dietrich; Hemingway the journalist, attracted to dramatic stories from war fronts; and Hemingway the archetypal macho man, a sportsman and gun aficionado who survived two plane crashes while hunting on the African safari.
Ernest Hemingway is definitely one of the greats in American literature. His works have been required reading for most of us at some time or other, and there's a good reason for that. Hemingway gets us thinking, talking, considering, and reconsidering. Now, the North Independence Branch has the honor of inviting you to rediscover Hemingway in the company of your peers! This might mean reexamining his writings with a more mature outlook, or it might mean making it through something you secretly never read in high school.
