Hemingway Foundation Gala

Oak Park Public Library

Date TBD

The annual Hemingway Benefit, will be held at the Oak Park Public Library. More details to follow soon.

We recognize both our 2019 Hemingway Scholarship and Hemingway Shorts award recipients as part of our program for the evening.

The Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park (EHFOP) fosters an understanding of the life and work of Ernest Hemingway, with emphasis on his Oak Park origins and impact on world literature. As such, we are dedicated to “thoughtful reading and writing”, offering a wide variety of programs that both nurture and encourage creative writing - for students and persons of all ages.

From our scholarship program, to our global search for exceptional writers through the Hemingway Shorts literary journal, to our writer in residence and other programming – we strive to educate, give, and learn. Our mission is both local and global in reaching a community of readers and authors from all over the world who are brought together by Hemingway’s literary legacy. 

The net event proceeds benefit the Foundation’s mission programs including our Hemingway Foundation Scholarship Fund.

Thank you to our corporate sponsors
