Hemingway/Salinger: The Trauma Artists

June 27, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

featuring Andrew Farah, Chief of Psychiatry, High Point Regional Health, UNC Health Care

Ernest Hemingway and J.D. Salinger are giants of 20th-century American literature, but both suffered from neurological and psychological conditions in their later years. How might Hemingway’s history of head trauma and Salinger’s PTSD, incurred as a result of his military service in World War II, have contributed to or hampered their artistic output? What can we learn about their works through investigating their neurological histories? What insights may be gained into these conditions by looking at their art? Join psychiatrist Andy Farah, author of Hemingway’s Brain, as he explores the inner worlds of these tortured geniuses.
