PARIS: THE "LOST GENERATION". REMEMBERING CLASSIC PARIS EXPATS FROM THE 1920s. RELIVING THAT ALWAYS FASCINATING MOMENT IN PARIS HISTORY.
"Ernest Hemingway and F. Scott Fitzgerald In Paris: A Turbulent Friendship.”
Special Guest is David Burke:Writer, Filmmaker, And Literary Tour Guide.
From David Burke:
"After the publication of The Great Gatsby in the spring of 1925 the peak of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s work as a novelist – he and his wife Zelda came to Paris. Within days he tracked down Ernest Hemingway in Montmartre, and a complicated relationship developed." David will share details of that fascinating story with us.
(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.)
(F. Scott Fitzgerald was an American novelkst and short story writer, whose works are the paradigmatic writings of theJazz Age. He is widely regarded as one of the greatest American writers of the 20th century. Fitzgerald is considered a member of the "Lost Generation." (Paris) of the 1920s.)
Perfect for nostalgia buffs! - Patricia
