Tall Tales | The Old Man and the Sea
A thoughtful book discussion making connections between art and literature.
First 10 households to register receive a free copy of the book!*
In our exhibit, In a Different Light: Winslow Homer & Frederic Remington, the museum features paintings and prints by Homer that were inspired by his time in the coastal town of Cullercoats, England. Many of the artworks include scenes and figures of fishermen and fishwives, both of whom were essential to the local economy of this small fishing village. What is the life of a fisherman like? Written in 1951, The Old Man and the Sea is Hemingway’s final full-length work published during his lifetime and follows the story of Santiago, an aging Cuban fisherman.
Join us for our next Tall Tales book discussion as we read and discuss The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway. Please read the selected book prior to the program.
