BOSTON – U.S. and Cuban officials and scholars are meeting in Boston to
discuss joint efforts to preserve artifacts at Ernest Hemingway’s former
Cuban estate.

The forum at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum is
focusing on a U.S.-Cuban collaboration to ensure the literary icon’s
legacy lives on in both countries.

Wednesday afternoon’s event includes TV host Bob Vila, a son of Cuban
emigrants who’s been working to restore the Hemingway home itself.
Joining Vila are U.S. Rep. Jim McGovern of Massachusetts; Ada Rosa
Alfonso, director of Cuba’s Hemingway Museum; and Susan Wrynn, former
curator of the JFK Library’s Ernest Hemingway Collection.

Amid a new era of U.S.-Cuban normalization, both nations are working
together to preserve Hemingway artifacts ranging from books and letters
to fishing rods and mounted animal trophies.
