The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
June 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$25
featuring Henry Veggian, Teaching Associate Professor, English and Comparative Literature
“One of the enduring works of American fiction. Using the simple, powerful language of a fable, Hemingway takes the timeless themes of courage in the face of defeat and personal triumph won from loss and transforms them into a magnificent twentieth-century classic.”—Simon and Schuster, Inc.
“The Old Man and the Sea is a beautiful tale, awash in the seasalt and sweat, bait and beer of the Havana coast. It tells a fundamental human truth: in a volatile world, from our first breath to our last wish, through triumphs and pitfalls both trivial and profound, what sustains us, ultimately, is hope.”—The Guardian
“The Old Man and the Sea, an apparently simple fable, represents the mature Hemingway at his best. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature soon after its publication, and half a century later it is still one of his most read books.”—Barnes & Noble Booksellers, Inc.
TUITION: $25, includes a copy of the book
