Michael Artman Presents "Hemingway’s Paris”

The Clarke Historical Library will welcome Michael Artman on Wednesday, July 31 for a presentation about the Parisian quartiers that Ernest Hemingway called home during the 1920s.

Mr. Artman and his wife exchanged homes with a Parisian family and found themselves living in the Latin Quarter of Paris, only a few blocks from where Ernest and Hadley Hemingway lived when they moved to Paris in 1922. Long interested in the Hemingways, Mr. Artman’s vacation became a research trip into “Hemingway’s Paris,” walking the pathways traveled by Ernest and Hadley and visiting the haunts they found intriguing so many years ago.

Join us, as Mr. Artman takes us along for the journey. Retired educators from Port Huron, MI, Mr. Artman and his wife, Anita Shagena are both two-time CMU Alumni.

The presentation begins at 7:00 pm in the Park Library Baber Room and will be followed by a reception. Both are open to the public without charge.
