The library is once again partnering with PBS; mark your calendars now for an exciting documentary event! “Hemingway,” a three-part, six-hour documentary film by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, paints an intimate picture of the writer—who captured on paper the complexities of the human condition in spare and profound prose, and whose work remains deeply influential around the world—while also penetrating the myth of Hemingway the man’s man, to reveal a deeply troubled and ultimately tragic figure. The film also explores Hemingway’s limitations and biases as an artist. The film will air on WGTV in three parts, April 5, 6 and 7 at 8 p.m. each night.
You can join an hour-long discussion with the filmmakers on April 8 at 8:00 pm by registering at https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_dRecA2cKTE6pbgyXGnF1Vw. Availability is limited.
