Friday, January 15, 2021


Nancy Sindelar, who wrote “Influencing Hemingway: The People and Places That Shaped His Life and Work,” will spend two weeks this month as a writer-in-residence at the historic Ernest and Mary Hemingway House in Ketchum.

Sindelar will also offer a virtual presentation “A Visit to Papa’s Places” as part of her residency on Tuesday, Jan. 26.

The presentation tours the places Ernest Hemingway lived and worked, including Oak Park, Ill., where he grew up; Paris, France, where he lived among a group of American authors; Chamby, Switzerland, where he skied on vacation; Toronto, Canada; Key West, Fla., San Francisco de Paula, Cuba, and Ketchum.

Sindelar will consider the impact these places had on Hemingway’s life and work as she shares photographs of the places.

The program will air at 6 p.m. at and will be recorded for later viewing.

"I'm honored to be the Hemingway Writer-in-Residence and have the opportunity to research Hemingway's final years and hopefully talk with people who remember him," says Sindelar of her upcoming residency. "Many years ago, I learned to ski at Sun Valley and worked at the Roundhouse and Trail Creek Cabin.  Returning to this special place is the thrill of a lifetime!"

Sindelar was a contributor at the Library’s annual Ernest Hemingway Seminar in 2014 and 2015. She also has made presentations at the International Colloquium Ernest Hemingway in Havana, Cuba; at the Hemingway Society Conferences in Venice, Italy, and Oak Park, Ill., and been keynote speaker at the Michigan Hemingway Society Conference and the Hemingway Days Festival in Key West, Fla.

A board member of the Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park, she teaches “Hemingway: The Man, The Writer, The Legend” at the University of California-Riverside.
