Ernest Hemingway Alive!



Professional actor Richard Clark will bring the genius of literary giant Ernest Hemingway to life in "Ernest Hemingway Alive! Life, Language and The Pursuit of Happiness" , a one-man dramatic tour de force on Tuesday, November 4 at 1:15 p.m. at The Barney Library, 71 Main Street, Farmington.

Clark's portrayal reveals Hemingway's depth and passion as he reflects on the tumultuous middle years of the 20th century through the writer's eyes.

The author of such classics as The Old Man and The Sea, The Sun Also Rises and A Farewell To Arms, Hemingway was understated on paper, but not in life. He was a dashing figure whose exploits in battle, bullfighting and booze shocked society and challenged ivory-tower notions of his writing life.

Clark has been acting professionally in theater and television for more than 30 years. He is noted for his recreations of historical figures ranging from William Shakespeare to Andrew Carnegie.

For further information or to reserve a spot, call The Barney Library at 677-6866.
