Join us for an online Trivia Night with a Hemingway theme.
The multiple-choice questions for this virtual trivia night will cover more than just Ernest Hemingway—each round will have a theme related to Hemingway's life, times, and literary themes. For example, Hemingway traveled extensively throughout his life; a round may be themed, "World Travel." You do not need to be a Hemingway expert to compete in this trivia night.
Prizes will be given away throughout the night.
Hemingway is a production of Florentine Films and WETA.
