This was a great talk led by a skilled teacher who knew his stuff and knew how to communicate in a concise and entertaining way. I loved the elucidating quotes and I loved how he framed the discussion in the context of story constructs. Expertly done!
Samuel’s presentation provided a fascinating, unique perspective of Hemingway’s complex life writ large yet in the context of his Paris experience. His passion for and knowledge of the subject were extensive. He was able to address intimate aspects of the man, his life and loves, in a conversant manner. Very personable!
