As part of the Being Human Festival 2018, Sarah Churchwell and Alex Preston will give a literary walking tour of Paris

Spend an evening immersed in the world of Paris in the 1920s as Sarah Churchwell and Alex Preston lead you on a Hemingway and Fitzgerald-inspired walking tour of Paris. You’ll visit the bars and bistros that they frequented, walk the same streets they walked and see a host of the places they lived, from the Rue Cardinal Lemoine to the Hotel d’Angleterre. You’ll learn more about the relationship between Hemingway and Fitzgerald, the literature they produced during and about their time in Paris, as well as the work of the many writers and artists who were also in Paris during this brightest period in the cultural history of the city of lights.

The evening will end with a drinks reception at the atmospheric Reid Hall only a few paces from Hemingway’s beloved Closerie de Lilas.
