“Hemingway’s Boat: Everything He Loved in Life and Lost, 1934-1961,” Jonathan Segal on Paul Hendrickson

A 2013 Chestertown Book Festival Event.

Cosponsored by the C. V. Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience.

At 7 PM Friday, September 20 at the Bookplate downtown Chestertown, Jonathan Segal, Senior Editor at Alfred A. Knopf will talk about writing and publishing with Paul Hendrickson, author of Hemingway’s Boat. Segal worked closely with Hendrickson on the book, which is dedicated to the editor. The evening promises to be an insightful glimpse into the dynamics of high-level publishing.

“This book is a large-minded, rigorously fair summation of the best thought on Hemingway’s writing, his life, traumas, pathologies, his family and friends, his even more abundant cast of personal, literary and cultural enemies.” Howell Raines, on “Hemingway’s Boat,” Washington Post
