Key West Library if you want to start reading. And we have a brochure with a handy calendar of events -- all taking place in the first two weeks of March -- including a showing of the movie version (yes we know it barely resembles the book but it's got Bogart and Bacall and a script by William Faulkner). We'll also be showing the documentary Soul of a People about the Works Progress Administration, which was very active in Key West in the 1930s. The Book Bites Reading Group will hold a special session at the Florida Keys Community College Library. Historian Tom Hambright will talk about the WPA in Key West. And it will all wrap up with a long-overdue honor: the Ernest Hemingway Home & Museum will become a Literary Landmark on Sunday, March 14. Stay tuned here for more details or stop by the library. You can also call us at 305-292-3595.
