Jump on Interstate 70 with us as we take a trip between two great American cities planted on the outer edges of Missouri -- St. Louis and Kansas City -- in order to explore their connections to Hemingway.
In the first half of our discussion, we're joined by Andrew Theising, author of Hemingway's Saint Louis: How St. Louisans Shaped His Life and Legacy, to understand more about the city's history, its arts & culture, and a vast array of St. Louisans, including Hemingway's first three wives.
250 miles away, we pick up with the story of Kansas City. We welcome Steve Paul, whose book Hemingway at Eighteen: The Pivotal Year That Launched an American Legend becomes our road map to navigating the city, its history, and Hemingway's formative journalistic experience at The Kansas City Star.
Grab a coffee, maybe some barbecue, and join us!
