When word came about that Ken Burns was creating a new documentary on Hemingway, IdahoPTV producer Bill Manny saw it as “an opportunity to tell a companion story about Hemingway’s life in Idaho.” Manny said “Hemingway often wrote about the power of omission, so rather than try to be encyclopedic about Hemingway’s experience in Idaho, I accepted Hemingway’s permission to leave things out and try to convey the ‘feeling’ of what it’s like to spend time in Hemingway’s home in Ketchum.” 

Join the virtual discussion with producer Bill Manny and special guests joining us from the Hemingway House in Ketchum and hear more about the making of Idaho’s Hemingway.
