Ernest Hemingway the (Oak Park, IL) Dominican University-Hemingway Society partnership

Ah, remember when I said that Oak Park, Il or the group that runs the Ernest Hemingway museum and birthplace should pair up with a volunteer group to properly promote Hemingway and these two locations as it relates to Hemingway week?

Where I found some information: http://ehfop.typepad.com/the_ernest_hemingway_foun/

The International Hemingway Society had a conference at Dominican University during July 17-22, 2016 with presentations done by filmmakers (documentaries) and authors that pertain to Hemingway during scheduled dates. My question is that even though this is exactly what is needed why is it done at Dominican University? Why not the local high school which is even closer to The Hemingway House and museum? Why does Oak Park, Il’s association with River Forest have to take precedence over the convenience of a possible tour and a strategic placement to the Hemingway locations?

It seems to me something else that Oak Park, Il has bungled where the International Hemingway Society has not, in fact, they have organized it better than Oak Park, Il has, maybe because their events are done out of love for the man, the author, Hemingway and not just to exploit him.
