Hemingway’s Paris, an illustrated talk
Elizabeth (Liz) Kemble will give an illustrated talk on "Hemingway's Paris." See 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). See the places where Hemingway lived, worked, and partied, most of which are still in existence today. Learn 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. We will also discuss his relationships with his mentors, such as Sherwood Anderson and Stein, and with his "Paris" wives, Hadley and Pauline. Liz is the founder of Travellati Tours, providing themed, immersive, interactive travel tours for the cultural voyager; and the designer of the tour "Papa's Paris," a one-week stroll through the moveable feast that is Paris; details available at http://www.travellati.com/paris/.
