Travels with Hemingway’s Keeper

When

Michael Katakis is a man of many talents: he’s a travel writer, photographer, and manager of Ernest Hemingway’s literary estate. With Hemingway’s son, Patrick, he works to protect the integrity of the great man’s legacy – a job that takes him around the globe.

He’ll talk to Laura Jean McKay about the hard-living, muscular-writing master wordsmith that was Hemingway, and his own love of travel, and how his two great loves influence his own creative work.

BYO lunch.
