A Walk Through Shostakovich's Fifth Symphony, And Hemingway's Year In Kansas City

Oct 19, 2017

The executive director of the Kansas City Symphony is a busy man, but Frank Byrne has carved out some time for Up To Date. Today, he leads us through a Shostakovich symphony he's been listening to a lot lately. Then, we learn about the reporting, the writing, and the living Ernest Hemingway did in Kansas City during his 18th year of life. Longtime Kansas City Star editor Steve Paul says it was a pivotal year in Hemingway's self-invention.

Steve Paul will discuss his book 'Hemingway at Eighteen' at Raven Bookstore in Lawrence at 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 19. For more information, go to RavenBookStore.com.
