Michigan Hemingway Society

Since 1990, focusing on the Michigan influence in Ernest Hemingway's work,
especially the Nick Adams Stories.
The society holds an annual Hemingway Weekend in Petoskey, MI
each Fall which features speakers, readings, exhibits, and tours
of northern Michigan sites where the Nobel Prize-winning author
spent his boyhood summers.

The MHS 2014 Fall Conference will be held

If you enjoyed the unforgettable 2012 presentation on women in Hemingway's life,
his mother and wives, you are sure to enjoy this year's theme which will center on several
members of the "supporting cast" of people that were a part of Ernest Hemingway's life.
