ENCORE: Documentary Explores Hemingway's Connection To Idaho

This interview originally aired March 22, 2021.

Many Idahoans are familiar with a few basics when it comes to Ernest Hemingway and his ties to Idaho: his promotion for the Sun Valley Resort, his love of hunting, and that he died by suicide at his home along the Big Wood River. That’s probably where most people’s knowledge ends.

The folks at Idaho Public Television decided to dig a little deeper, and the end result? A new documentary titled "Idaho’s Hemingway" exploring his time in Idaho from 1939 until his death in 1961.

Idaho Matters spoke with IPTV's Bill Manny and Jenny Emery Davidson, the Executive Director at the Community Library in Ketchum.
