"Ernest Hemingway's Paris: The Paris Of The Lost Generation. More Great Stories."

Ernest Hemingway, a giant of 20th century American literature (a Nobel Prize winner), learned much of his skill here in Paris mingling with the Personalities of the day such as Gertrude Stein, James Joyce and Ezra Pound. Many of his books and short stories are rich in Paris references, most notably “The Sun Also Rises” and “A Moveable Feast”. He was the quintessential American .expatriate of the 1920s. Pamela Grant will present Hemingway's early period in Paris when he lived in the Mouffetard district and Montparnasse. He spent about 7 years there and managed to publish a bestseller “The Sun Also Rises” in 1926 (nearly calling it “The Lost Generation” - a term coined by fellow Paris expat Gertrude Stein to describe World War I Veterans ). The indelible mark that he left on this mythic city has drawn many of us to Paris in search of the Hemingway myth that he spawned nearly a century ago. We'll hear more great stories about who we think of as being :special personalities of a special era

About Pamela Grant: After graduating from Vassar College with a degree in Art History, Pam came to France over 15 years ago to pursue French studies. The "endless beauty and history" of the “City of Light” drew her in. She passed the rigorous French national guide exam and has been leading groups on historic and thematic tours of Paris for over 10 years. Her other passion is writing. Specializing in the film industry, she recently adapted “La Vie en Rose” into English. Hemingway and the Lost Generation is one of her favorite tours.
