About this Summinar
In this first of our two seminars on Ernest Hemingway, Dr. George Colburn shares a preview of his work-in-progress documentary, Young Hemingway: Finding His Muse in Northern Michigan.
The documentary, which is planned for on-air release in the fall of 2016, is based on the recently published letters of the young Ernest Hemingway and the influence of Northern Michigan on the author’s life and literature. The production is a cooperative effort between the non-profit company, Contemporary Learning Systems (CLS) and Starbright Media Corporation (SMC).
This special sneak-peek preview will be followed by discussion with Dr. Colburn and Ken Marek.
