Idaho Public Television videographer Jay Krajic films Mary Hemingway’s desk in the Ketchum house in July 2020.
Many Idahoans are familiar with the general outlines of Ernest Hemingway’s Idaho story: the celebrities, the Sun Valley Resort, his death by suicide at home along the Big Wood River. What is less known is how his time in Idaho influenced the writer’s life, loves and literary output.
Bill Manny, creator of Idaho Public Television’s new short documentary Idaho’s Hemingway, will give an inside look at the making of the film that premiered on March 4.
This live discussion will also feature Richard Blanco, poet and the Library’s 2020 Hemingway Distinguished Lecturer, Stacey Guill, Hemingway scholar and frequent presenter at the Library’s annual Ernest Hemingway Seminar each fall, and Jenny Emery Davidson, the Library’s executive director.
The panel will explore what Hemingway’s life in Idaho tells us about our state’s cultural landscape.
