Paula McLain

Monday, May 7, 2018 - 7:00p.m.

Bestselling author of “The Paris Wife,” Paula McLain returns to the subject of Ernest Hemingway in a novel about his passionate, stormy marriage to Martha Gellhorn—a fiercely independent, ambitious young woman who would become one of the greatest war correspondents of the 20th Century. In 1937, 28-year-old Martha Gellhorn travels alone to Madrid to report on the atrocities of the Spanish Civil War. It’s the adventure she’s been looking for and her chance to prove herself a worthy journalist in a field dominated by men. But she also finds herself unexpectedly—and uncontrollably—falling in love with Hemingway, a man on his way to becoming a legend.

The event will be an onstage interview with KMOX Radio host Debbie Monterrey.

Doors open at 6:00 p.m.
