Hemingway Home and Museum pictures are now a video on YouTube.com

I combined a bunch of my old Hemingway Home and Museum pictures from my Google Plus collection with some music, and created video with it on YouTube.com. I titled it: “Hemingway House and Museum (pictures) video” I made it for those who need something extra for school projects or research and since I took the photos you can do what you want with it.

Ernest Hemingway information -where do I find it?

I had one reader email me and ask me where do I get some of the stuff that I find on Ernest Hemingway, usually it is online or I do something like go to the Hemingway Museum and Home to gather facts and so I can see how others are officially (physically) presenting the nature of the writer. I usually would go with sites or organizations like the national endowment of the humanities, (neh.com) because they are the official organization headed by our beloved government to handle the categories which Hemingway’s work would fall under.

I also like people who blog about the subject matter, usually you can find tidbits that are not found the major sites but can be collaborated elsewhere and give you fun facts about Hemingway which may be useful if doing a school report or if you are heading out with a group to the Hemingway museum.

These are some interesting websites about Hemingway that touch upon things OUTSIDE of Oak Park, IL the great village that exploits his name every time they get:

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.
