Philip Mohr of the Des Plaines History Center will lead a book discussion on Influencing Hemingway : People and Places that Shaped his Life and Work by Nancy W. Sindelar.
The reader is introduced to the individuals who played significant roles in Hemingway's development as both a man and as an artist--as well as the environments that had a profound impact on the author's life. In words and photos, readers will see images of Hemingway the child, the teenager, and the aspiring author--as well as the troubled legend dealing with paranoia and fear.
Copies of the book are available at the 3rd floor Readers Services desk at the Des Plaines Public Library 60 days prior to the date. This discussion will be held at the Des Plaines History Center.
