Sean Hemingway talked about the book he edited, A Moveable Feast: The Restored Edition (Scribner; July 14, 2009). Sean Hemingway’s grandfather, Pulitzer and Nobel Prize-winning author Ernest Hemingway, died July 2, 1961. A Moveable Feast, recollections of his time spent as part of the expatriate community in 1920s Paris, was published posthumously in 1964. Since his personal papers were released in 1979, scholars have examined and debated the changes made to the text before publication. In this edition Sean Hemingway presents the original unfinished manuscript along with a number of unfinished, never-before-published Paris sketches and other pieces. Sean Hemingway was joined by Adam Gopnik and Diane Johnson in a discussion moderated by Scott Simon. They also responded to questions from members of the audience.

This was the first Kennedy Library Forum in the 2009-2010 series. It was held Sunday, September 20, 2009, at 2:00 p.m. at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum in Boston. 

An introductory video was shown with Patrick Hemingway and his nephew Sean Hemingway talking about the book and showing items from the Hemingway collection at the Kennedy Presidential Library. close
