John Hemingway to sign copies of 'Strange Tribe' July 29
John Hemingway, grandson of Ernest Hemingway, will read from and sign copies of his memoir, "Strange Tribe," on Wednesday, July 29, from 3-4:30 p.m. in the third-floor John Hemingwayexhibition area of the Dean B. Ellis Library. Hemingway's visit to ASU is part of the celebration of the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center's tenth anniversary. Hemingway will make two other scheduled appearances, one at 1:30 p.m., Thursday, July 30, at the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center  (HPMEC), 1021 W. Cherry Street, Piggott, Ark. On Thursday, July 30, he will also read from and sign copies of "Strange Tribe" at 5 p.m. at That Bookstore in Blytheville, 316 W. Main Street, Blytheville, Ark. "Strange Tribe" is a fascinating look at Ernest Hemingway’s relationship with his youngest son Gregory (the author’s father). As a cross-dresser and eventually a transsexual, Gregory struggled with personal demons until his death in 2001 in the Women’s Correctional Facility of the Miami Dade County Jail. In this narrative, John reveals how his father and grandfather were actually “two sides of the same coin,” sharing surprising similarities. The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center is an Arkansas State University Heritage SITE. For details, call ext. 2803, or see the NewsPage release.
