A Moveable Read: Hemingway in the 21st Century

Part Two: A Moveable Feast

The decades between the World Wars saw an explosion of art and artistic movements in the West. During the 20’s, Paris attracted artists from around the world, and the decade produced lasting art. Few books capture this period in the manner of Hemingway’s memoir, A Movable Feast. This conversation will consider the difference between ex-patriation and emigration, what art arises out of periods of socio-economic crisis, and whether Hemingway’s insights into social equity, egotism and constructs of identity prove insightful to our current historical period.

Facilitator: Karolis Gintaras Zukauskas, Writer, Professor of Language Arts, Morton College

Part Four: The Snows of Kilimanjaro

"The Snows of Kilimanjaro" is one of Hemingway's best known and often taught short stories. But despite its inclusion in most American literature anthologies, the story is one of his darkest as it bitterly discusses the intermixing of art, patronage and gender roles. We will consider how the story frames these ideas and then use our discussion as a jumping off point for a larger conversation about how the story tells the truth, tells lies, tells lies about the truth, and truthfully lies.

Part Five: The Killers

"The Killers" is a story of boyhood innocence lost, understood, and then nostalgically remembered. It is also one of Hemingway's best known gangster stories, with its portrayal of Chicago gangsters, racism, and violence. How do the different genres intertwine in the story? How is it a Chicago gangster story? How is it not? Is it racist in its depictions or does it critique racism? What does it suggest about violence? We will start with these questions and follow the discussion wherever it leads.

Part One: A Clean, Well-Lighted Place

Hemingway’s A Clean, Well-Lighted Place is among the most masterful short stories ever composed, and among Hemingway’s most beloved works. Curiously, the story’s central themes are suicide and male loneliness. This conversation will consider the story’s fusion of empathy for the forgotten, and the stark, terse aesthetic Hemingway chose as a means to consider male social isolation. We will consider the current epidemic of male suicide through the lens of Hemingway’s tale of a depressed Spanish waiter.

Hemingway Birthday Celebration Lecture (Valerie Hemingway)

Hemingway Birthday Celebration Lecture (Valerie Hemingway)

  • Oak Park Public Library-Veterans Room, Second Flr (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Hemingway Foundation proudly presents the Hemingway Birthday Celebration lecture as former WIR and current foundation board member, David W. Berner, will host a conversation with special guest, Valerie Hemingway about her life and times with Ernest Hemingway.

A chance encounter in Spain in 1959 brought young Irish reporter Valerie Danby-Smith face to face with Ernest Hemingway. The interview was awkward and brief, but before it ended something had clicked into place. For the next two years, she devoted her life to Hemingway and his wife, Mary, traveling with them through beloved old haunts in Spain and France and living with them during the tumultuous final months in Cuba.

Hemingway has evoked the magic and the pathos of Papa Hemingway’s last years in Running with the Bulls, published by Ballantine Books in 2006. The account of what she enjoyed, and what she endured, during her astonishing years of living as a Hemingway, Running with the Bulls fully captures the mystique of one of our greatest authors.

As his secretary in Spain, France, and Cuba, after the author's death Valerie worked for the Hemingway Estate in Cuba, Key West, Ketchum, and New York—gathering all of the author’s papers and organizing them for presentation to the Kennedy Library.

She came by the Hemingway name by marrying—and later divorcing—Gregory, his youngest son.  For two decades she worked in publishing and public relations in New York City, including two years as a fiction reviewer for Publishers Weekly. Her articles have appeared in Saturday ReviewSki Magazine, and Smithsonian Magazine.

Book Launch: The Consequence of Stars: A Memoir of Home by David W. Berner (open to the public)

Book Launch: The Consequence of Stars: A Memoir of Home by David W. Berner (open to the public)

THE CONSEQUENCE OF STARS is the story of searching. Part travelogue and part memoir, these connected essays focus on our universal longing for home, our singular place in the world, in all its meanings. The author examines a modern life attempting to find balance after the death of a family member and how we continually redefine our lives. Unlike many memoirs, Berner's story is not about dysfunction or overwhelming grief, but rather the story of the existential journey all of us share. 

David W. Berner is a memoirist whose personal stories tell all of our stories. His memoirs reflect on our collective relationships and how those experiences link us to the world we share. From stories of fathers and sons, to road trips, travel memoir, pets, and music, David's books are mirrors of our common human experience. He has been the Writer-in-Residence for the Jack Kerouac Project in Orlando, where he was privileged to live and work at the Kerouac House in Orlando for two-and-a-half months. He later was honored with the Writer-in-Residence position at the Ernest Hemingway Birthplace in Oak Park, Illinois. He is a current Hemingway Foundation board member.

Stephane Wrembel is quite simply one of the finest guitar players in the world.  The breadth and range of his playing and compositions are unmatched. To say that Wrembel— who learned his craft among the Gypsies at campsites in the French countryside— has already had a remarkable career would be an under-statement. This prolific, virtuoso guitarist from France has been releasing a steady stream of music since 2006 and has truly made his mark as one of the most original guitar voices in contemporary music. Stephane is widely known for “Bistro Fada”, the theme song from the 2011 Woody Allen Oscar winning film, Midnight In Paris which won a Grammy Award for “Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media”.

Tonight he joins us for an exclusive, house concert. Seating is limited and advanced tickets are strongly recommended.
