On April 20 the Willa Cather Book Club will meet to discuss The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway. This novel won the 1953 Pulitzer for Fiction. Old Man is Hemingway’s only Pulitzer, although many considered this an inferior work. The story of Santiago, a poor fisherman, and his greatest catch, not only won the Pulitzer but helped Hemingway to receive the Nobel Prize for literature the following year. There are two meeting times available; 4:00 p.m. at Cherry Corner Estates and 6:30 at the Cather Second Home.
