At Home in Hemingway’s World

“At Home in Hemingway’s World,” the 17th International Ernest Hemingway Conference, put on by The Hemingway Society, is underway at Dominican.  It started on July 17th and will run until July 22nd.  Hemingway scholars from all over the world attend conference sessions on campus and visit Hemingway sites in Oak Park.  (The author was born in Oak Park and attended Oak Park and River Forest High School.)
