Join us for a discussion on The Paris Wife by Paula McLain. Books will be available for check out from the branch.
Meeting through mutual friends in Chicago, Hadley is intrigued by brash “beautiful boy” Ernest Hemingway. After a brief courtship and small wedding, they take off to live in Paris. There, Hadley makes a convincing transformation from an overprotected child to a brave young woman who puts up with impoverished living conditions and shattering loneliness to prop up her husband’s career.
