Hemingway’s Idaho the Focus of Panel Discussion
Wednesday, March 24, 2021


Ernest Hemingway, who lived in Sun Valley off and on beginning in the late 1930s, will be the subject of a panel discussion at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 25.

Bill Manny, who created Idaho Public Television’s short documentary “Idaho Hemingway,” will offer an inside look at the making of the film, which aired March 4.

Jenny Emery Davidson, executive director of The Community Library, will lead the discussion, which will also feature Richard Blanco, a poet who read the poem “One Today” at Barack Obama’s second inauguration, and Hemingway scholar Stacey Guill. They will discuss what Hemingway’s life in Idaho tells us about the state’s cultural landscape.

Manny and IPTV created a companion story about Hemingway’s life in Idaho after learning of Ken Burns’ multi-year project creating a six-part documentary series on Hemingway. The series will launch April 5 on Public TV.

Among Manny’s efforts was trying to convey the feeling of what it’s like to spend time in Hemingway’s house overlooking the Big Wood River in Ketchum.
