Author Nancy W. Sindelar will be at Vail Public Library on Wed. Jan. 20 at 5:30 pm to discuss her book “Influencing Hemingway: People and Places That Shaped His Life and Work.”
Influencing Hemingway was inspired by Sindelar’s background in teaching. She states, “As a former English teacher at Hemingway’s alma mater, Oak Park and River Forest High School, I first explored Ernest’s high school years as a means of engaging my students in his novels. I studied Ernest’s yearbooks, his high school writing and even met some of his former teachers. Together my students and I learned that the man who became an international literary figure and sports legend also was an avid reader, a high school athlete, the editor of the school’s newspaper, contributor to the literary magazine and that he played the cello in the school’s orchestra and participated in the school play.” After additional research, including trips to France, Switzerland and Cuba, Influencing Hemingway was written as a modest attempt to document how Ernest Hemingway’s early years and the people and places Ernest was drawn to in his adult life contributed to his thoughts, actions and writing.
