Our 2017 Reading Retreat will be held on Saturday, April 1. Upon registration, participants will receive copies of three novels, including Ernest Hemingway’s Islands in the Stream. The three novels will focus on the boundaries between fiction and biography. Then, April 1 participants will come together at the museum for a day of meaningful discussion and fun activities.
Discussion about the books will be led by experts in the field. In addition to these discussions, there will be a dinner featuring special guest Valerie Hemingway, at one time Ernest Hemingway’s personal secretary and confidante and later the wife of his youngest son. Participants in the retreat will receive a complimentary copy of her memoir about her time with the Hemingway family, Running with the Bulls.
The cost of the retreat is $100, which includes copies of the three books, meals throughout the weekend, and a ticket to the dinner. Tickets for the dinner alone cost $35. For more information about the retreat, you can download a brochure here.
