Hemingway’s Years In Cuba Documented
History and political tensions between the US and Cuba have long shrouded the over 20 years that author Ernest Hemingway spent in the island nation. His home, “Finca Vigia” was twelve miles outside of Havana and had a 9,000 book library and more than 2,000 photographs, scrapbooks, manuscripts, and galley proofs.
Today, the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library announced it’s receiving 2,000 new digitized images of Hemingway’s papers and personal effects specifically from Finca Vigia. It’s a result of a unique agreement between the Cuban Council of National Heritage and the Boston-based Finca Vigia Foundation.
