The Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park is pleased to announce its annual Hemingway Benefit, “Hemingway at the Ritz,” on Saturday, May 4, 2019, from 7 - 10 p.m. at the Oak Park Public Library.

Ernest Hemingway, the "liberator" of the Ritz bar at the end of World War II, loved the Ritz Hotel in Paris. And, we love Ernest Hemingway! So, join us as we party like Papa at the Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park's 2019 Gala "Hemingway at the Ritz" be held at the Oak Park Public Library. Be captivated by the music of the world-renowned French Gypsy jazz artist Stephane Wrembel who will perform for us throughout the evening, while you enjoy French-inspired hors d'oeuvres and cocktails. In addition, we will have special guest, Philip Greene, author, cocktail historian and enthusiast, on hand to provide insight and the requisite gravitas for the night’s festivities.During the evening, we will recognize both our 2019 Hemingway Scholarship and Hemingway Shorts award recipients as part of our program.

From our scholarship program, to our global search for exceptional writers through the Hemingway Shorts literary journal, to our writer in residence and other programming – we strive to educate, give, and learn. Our mission is both local and global in reaching a community of readers and authors from all over the world who are brought together by Hemingway’s literary legacy.

The net event proceeds benefit the Foundation’s mission programs including our Hemingway Foundation Scholarship Fund.
