The Friends of the University Park Public Library is pleased to present “The Importance of Being Ernest Hemingway” with Dr. Elliot Engel on Friday, November 17, 2017, at 7pm. Seating is limited, so get your ticket early!
Ernest Hemingway is one of the great American novelists of the 20th century, having been awarded both the Pulitzer and the Nobel prizes. His works include A Farewell to Arms, The Old Man and the Sea, and For Whom the Bell Tolls. His adventurous spirit, love of the outdoors, and larger-than-life personality are reflected in his writing. Dr. Engel, with his enthusiastic and engaging style, will bring Hemingway to life.
