The Friends of the Loyola Libraries Speaker Series welcomes educator, Hemingway scholar, and Loyola alumna Nancy W. Sindelar (PhD ’87). Dr. Sindelar will present a talk titled “The People and Places That Influenced Ernest Hemingway.” Her program focuses on the people, places, and activities that shaped the legendary author who courted life-threatening adventures and glamorous friends while writing articles, novels, and short stories that captivated the world. Sindelar begins with Hemingway’s birth and early influences in Oak Park, Illinois and then moves to Hemingway’s adventures and experiences in Kansas City, Italy, France, Spain, Key West, Florida, Cuba, and Sun Valley, Idaho. The presentation includes rarely seen photos and excerpts from Hemingway’s personal letters to parents, wives, children, and friends.
Nancy W. Sindelar is the author of Influencing Hemingway: The People and Places That Shaped His Life and Work. A book signing will follow the program. To register, please visit LUC.edu/libraries/speakerseries. Contact Nicole Brodsky at 773.508.2616 for more information.
