Hemingway's Paris


Feb 18, 2017
02:30 PM until 04:00 PM


The Pound Ridge Library, 271 Westchester Avenue, Pound Ridge, NY 10576, will be offering an illustrated talk on “Hemingway’s Paris”, led by Elizabeth Kemble on Saturday, February 18 from 2:30-4:00PM in the Library’s Schaffner Room.   Ms. Kemble will share the places that Hemingway frequented in Paris, such as La Closerie des Lilas, the café where he wrote his masterpiece, The Sun Also Rises, in a coffee fueled six-week sprint; as well as the famous people he associated with, such as Gertrude Stein and F. Scott Fitzgerald; and the painters that he says influenced his prose style (hint: Cézanne).  Ms. Kemble will show period and contemporary photos (before/after) of the spots where Hemingway lived, worked, and partied, most of which are still in existence today. Topics of discussion will include the reasons that Hemingway went to Paris and how he got the chance to meet so many famous and influential people, such as Stein and Picasso. His relationships with his mentors, such as Sherwood Anderson and Stein, and with his "Paris" wives, Hadley and Pauline will also be discussed.


Admission is free.  For more information about the talk, contact Alan Ramsay at (914) 764-5085 at the Library.
