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 caf├ęs 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.
