We’ll Always Love Big Papa

The Big Read — a month-long program aimed at increasing the public’s love of all things literary — is currently underway in South Florida. The Florida Center for the Literary Arts at Miami Dade College (MDC) is offering film screenings, open forums, book discussions, panels, art exhibits, and musical and literary performances, all centering around this year’s book selection, A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway.

Jazz, along with banned alcohol, was the talk of the Twenties, which is when A Farewell to Arms was released. So to reminisce, MDC professor Mike di Liddo will conduct “All that Jazz!”, a musical and literary performance featuring Kitty Olliver and Ed Reardon tonight at 7:30 p.m. at MDC’s Wolfson Campus. Big Read festivities will culminate on April 21 with a one-day trip from Miami to Hemingway’s house in Key West, guided by author Stuart McIver, who penned Hemingway’s Key West.
April 12-21, 7:30 p.m.
