I'm a huge admirer of Ernest Hemingway's novels and short stories, so I was sorry that I was unable to hear William Kennedy, author of Chango's Beads and Two-Tone Shoes, and Paul Hendrickson, author of Hemingway's Boat: Everything He Loved in Life, and Lost, 1934-1961, discuss Hemingway and their books about the late great writer at the Philadelphia Free Library earlier this month.
Fortunately, I was able to listen to the two authors via the library's audio podcast.
You can listen to the MP3 audio of the author event via the below link:
Frank Wilson, my friend and former Philadelphia Inquirer editor, did a fine job of introducing the two authors.
I read Hemingway's Boat and I found Paul Hendrickson's book to be interesting and insightful and William Kennedy's Chango's Beads and Two-Tone Shoes is next on my list of books to read.
