A Moveable Feast
Weekly Activities:
Find Your Past: Genealogy - 5:30
Mahjong Club - 5:30
By Ernest Hemingway
With Special Guest Host John Brennan
Wired! Technology Help: 3 - 6
Published posthumously in
1964, A Moveable Feast remains one
of Ernest Hemingway's most
beloved works. A classic memoir
of Paris in the 1920s, filled with
portraits of others such as F. Scott
Fitzgerald and Gertrude Stein;
and insightful recollections of his
own early experiments with his
craft. It brilliantly evokes the
exuberant mood of Paris post war,
the youthful spirit, unbridled
creativity, and unquenchable
enthusiasm that Hemingway
himself epitomized.
