The Auburn Library scored a coup when it recently landed a globally traveling exhibit of 25 vintage photographs of and by Nobel Prize-winning author Ernest Hemingway.
The photos were shot in 1950, 1954 and 1958, when the author and his wife, Mary, visited the Veneto area in northern Italy.
“Hemingway in Venice” is on display through April 15 at 350 Nevada St., 530-886-4500, www.placer.ca.gov. Viewing hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesdays, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
Time Tested Book will host two events, both at 7 p.m. at 1114 21st St., Sacramento, 916-447-5696, www.timetestedbooks.net:
March 16: Christian Kiefer for “One Day Soon Time Will Have No Place Left To Hide.” Kiefer’s reputation as a literary experimenter has grown with the publication of his novels “The Infinite Tides” and “The Animals” “Time” is described as a kinoroman, “a novella-as-film-script-as-novella, exploring the nature of art and of life, focusing on the day-to-day existence of one couple.” Kiefer is a professor of English at American River College in Sacramento.
March 23: Steven Avella for the biography “Charles K. McClatchy and the Golden Era of American Journalism.” Trailblazer McClatchy was only 25 when he inherited the Sacramento Bee from his father in 1883. For the next 53 years, he would found McClatchy Newspapers and make The Bee one of the most powerful institutions in Northern California. Avella is also the author of “Sacramento: Indomitable City,” “The Good Life: Sacramento’s Consumer Culture” and “Sacramento and the Catholic Church.”
