Gold Country Writers proudly presents Jennifer Basye Sander on "We'll Always Have Paris and Hemingway!" Meetings are free and open to the public.
Join us for a moveable feast of sorts, when author and literary historian Jennifer Basye Sander shares tales of the International Hemingway Conference in Paris. Although most other speakers at the academic event chose to cover aspects of Ernest Hemingway's life, Jennifer chose to follow a parallel track and instead researched the lives of young composers who were living and working in Paris at the same time. Aaron Copland, Virgil Thomson, Darius Milhaud, all were a part of the thriving cultural swirl in post WWI Paris that so influenced Hemingway early in his career. An Independent Hemingway Scholar, Jennifer will discuss how the music world and the writing world overlapped in many ways in 1920s Paris, and share stories of what it was like to spend a week in Paris with a crowd of Hemingway scholars.
Jennifer was invited to present at the XVIII International Hemingway Conference in Paris, "Paris est une fete"...Hemingway's Moveable Feast--July 22-28, 2018. She also presented at the XVII Biennial International Ernest Hemingway Conference in Oak Park, Illinois--during July 2016.
Former Random House Senior Editor, author of more than fifty published books (including The Complete Idiot's Guide to Getting Published), and literary historian, Jennifer Basye Sander organizes literary travel and tours.
