The 2015 Hemingway Festival focuses on the theme "Hemingway at the Edges," exploring the many ways in which Hemingway pushed boundaries - in the wild places he visited, in the writing style he crafted, and in the political realms and conflict zones he investigated. The Festival includes a dynamic range of scholarly presentations, group discussions of Hemingway's work, and guided visits to local Hemingway sites.

amid the devastation of the Spanish Civil War.

and courted glamorous friends while
writing articles, novels, and short stories...
On Saturday morning, Festival participants will have a special opportunity to attend a morning breakout session on "Hemingway at Idaho" at Hemingway's final residence. The presentation will focus on how Hemingway participated in the local culture of the remote outpost of Sun Valley in the mid-20th century.
The Festival also will provide fun opportunities for Hemingway enthusiasts to explore the town and Hemingway haunts, including a luncheon and tour at the Library's Sun Valley Museum of History, a historic walking tour of Ketchum, and a gala dinner in Hemingway style at the Sawtooth Club.
SPECIAL THANKS: We would like to thank the Wattis-Dumke Foundation, the Idaho Humanities Council, the City of Ketchum, Boise State University, Cox Communications, and Idaho Independent Bank for supporting the 2015 Ernest Hemingway Festival.
