One City, One Book: Hemingway & His Women - A Conversation with Paula McLain (via Skype) and Lynn Carey

We’ll explore Hemingway and his women with New York Times best-selling author Paula McLain in conversation, via Skype, with local book critic Lynn Carey.

McLain is the author of two novels about Hemingway’s wives. "The Paris Wife" chronicles Hadley Richardson, who married Hemingway when he was a starving artist struggling for recognition. "Love and Ruin" centers on Hemingway’s third wife, Martha Gellhorn, a novelist, short story writer, and war correspondent.

This is the 13th year that the Walnut Creek Library Foundation has produced One City, One Book, which provides opportunities for community members to come together through the experience of reading to discuss a work of literature that’s accessible to adults and teens and touches on themes of common interest.

2018 One City, One Book is sponsored by a generous grant from Wells Fargo and supported by the East Bay Times and Minuteman Press Lafayette. This year’s program is in partnership with the Contra Costa County Library and Friends of the Walnut Creek Library.
