James McGrath Morris, The Ambulance Drivers: Hemingway, Dos Passos, and a Friendship Made and Lost in War

Monday, November 6, 2017 - 6:30 PM | Open to the Public | Members' Room | $15 per person | Advance registration required

After meeting for the first time on the front lines of World War I, two aspiring writers - Ernest Hemingway and John Dos Passos - forge an intense twenty-year friendship and write some of America’s greatest novels. Rich in evocative detail from Paris cafés to the Austrian Alps, from the streets of Pamplona to the waters of Key West, The Ambulance Drivers is a biography of a turbulent literary friendship and an illustration of how war both inspires and destroys, unites and divides.
