Author Paula McLain on The Paris Wife

Most of us know or think we know who Ernest Hemingway was -- a brilliant writer full of macho swagger, driven to take on huge feats of bravery and a pitcher or two of martinis -- before lunch. But beneath this man or myth, or some combination of the two, is another Hemingway, one we’ve never seen before. Hadley Richardson, Hemingway’s first wife, is the perfect person to reveal him to us -- and also to immerse us in the incredibly exciting and volatile world of Jazz-age Paris.

They called her Reckless A True Story of War, Love And One Extraordinary Horse    By Janet Barrett

When the  Fifth Regiment's Recoilless Rifle Platoon acquired a small Korean pony to haul ammunition to the front lines, what they got was a real-life warhorse, the courageous and indomitable Reckless, who stood with her Marines for two years during the Korean War, saving many lives, raising spirits, and winning the love and respect of all who knew her.

 Now read her full story, enhanced by 14 pages of photographs. Awesome, heart-warming, and downright funny -- just the way she was -- as remembered by those who knew Reckless, and love her still today.

Ms. Barrett's talk will weave some history of the Korean War and the Marines’ part in it with Reckless’ story – the heroics, and the amusing events.

Copies of the book will be available to purchase at the end of the program. Registration is required, please click the Register button below.
