The 19th Ernest Hemingway International Colloquium is holding its second day in Havana today and is presenting a lecture on the U.S. writer and Nobel Prize for Literature as another son of Cuba.

At the National Museum of Fine Arts, in the Universal Art building, scholars and specialists from different countries will discuss the life and work of the author of The Old Man and the Sea, his ties with the Caribbean island, interviews he gave and his friendship with Fidel Castro.

Other topics for today include a tour through part of Hemingway’s collection of letters, his passion for traveling and a vision of the award-winning writer in the context of the First World War.

From May 2 to 5 this edition commemorates the 70th anniversary of the awarding of the Pulitzer Prize (1953) to the famous American writer; and the 70th anniversary of the publication in Cuba, in Bohemia magazine, of the work The Old Man and the Sea, for which he received the Nobel Prize for Literature.

The event is part of the First International Congress on Cultural Heritage, which is being held on the same date in Havana with a large participation of national and international delegates. It is also attended by about thirty ministers of culture from the Group of 77 and China.
