Since his birth in 1899, Ernest Hemingway spent seventeen summers in northern Michigan. Returning from ambulance service during the First World War, Hemingway spent two more summers in the Little Traverse Bay region—its forests and rivers inspiring some of his most celebrated short works of fiction. This is the subject of award-winning author John Cohassey’s presentation “Hemingway in Michigan.”

Cohassey served as a consultant for the History Channel documentary Hippies (2007) and co-authored American Cultural Rebels (McFarland & Co. Inc., 2008). His recent book Hemingway and Pound: The Story of a Friendship, lays bare the triumphs and tragedies of two giants of modern literature. Books will be available for purchase after the presentation.
