Join us for a discussion on Hemingway and Women, a talk by UPS professor Ann Putnam! The event is part of Pierce County READS, the annual community reading event, and based on their selection of The Paris Wife by Paula McLain as the 2013 read. The novel provides an intriguing account of one of the world's greatest authors, Ernest Hemingway, seen through the eyes of his first wife, Hadley Richardson. This event is co-sponsored by the University of Puget Sound and King's Books.
