Hemingway, Journalism & War
Kansas City PBS and The Kansas City Star are proud to present, Hemingway: Journalism + War, a virtual discussion with award-winning filmmakers Ken Burns and Lynn Novick and Hemingway scholar Alex Vernon. Moderated by Kansas City Star columnist Melinda Henneberger, the conversation will focus on the influence of journalism and war on Ernest Hemingway’s body of work. This event precedes the premiere of Hemingway, a three-part, six-hour documentary series, directed by Burns and Novick, that weaves together a study of the famed author’s life, as well as interviews with celebrated writers, scholars, and Hemingway’s son, Patrick.
This local event is part of a larger, national series, which will feature Burns and Novick discussing other aspects of Hemingway’s life and influences. For more information on the new Hemingway documentary series and additional events click here.
