We’re not trying to play favorites with our literary birthdays this week, but we did stumble across a few Ernest Hemingway links in the past month that we figured we’d save for his big day. (The author was born July 21, 1899.)
Literary Hub has an essay about what Hemingway was doing in Cuba during World War II as well as a piece about what he cut from For Whom the Bell Tolls — the latter of which was written by his grandson, Sean Hemingway.
And in case you’re in the mood for lighter reading or listening, check out our National Mojito Day post on Hemingway’s connection to that beverage or a podcast on how his widow rescued his literary papers from Cuba.
