Hemingway’s life, legacy inspire new JFK Museum display
BOSTON (AP) — A new Ernest Hemingway exhibition puts a fresh spin on the author’s colorful life and legacy by displaying his own books and belongings alongside pop culture items from his time.
“Ernest Hemingway: A Life Inspired” opened on Thursday at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum, which has become the leading research center for Hemingway studies.
Visitors to the expanded show will see manuscripts for “A Farewell to Arms,” “The Sun Also Rises,” “For Whom the Bell Tolls” and other Hemingway works — but they will also glimpse popular paperback books from the first half of the 20th century, as well as magazines, photographs and other mementos pulled straight from his world.
