As a teenager, I spied a photograph of Ernest Hemingway hanging above the jukebox at the Last Chance Saloon in Big Horn, Wyoming...

That moment sparked a decades-long fascination with Hemingway, years of reading original source materials, including searching for clues to his connection to my home state. Along the way I spent a summer following in his Paris footsteps, founded my annual Paris Left Bank Writers Retreat – and uncovered little-known details of Ernest’s time spent during summers in Wyoming that led to my book Cockeyed Happy: Ernest Hemingway’s Wyoming Summers with Pauline and an invitation to speak at the opening of the 19th Biannual International Hemingway Society Conference.
