The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway

The Old Man and the Sea is a novel written by the American author Ernest Hemingway in 1951 in Cuba, and published in 1952. It was the last major work of fiction to be produced by Hemingway and published in his lifetime. One of his most famous works, it centers upon Santiago, an aging fisherman who struggles with a giant marlin far out in the Gulf Stream. The Old Man and the Sea was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1953 and was cited by the Nobel Committee as contributing to the awarding of the Nobel Prize in Literature to Hemingway in 1954.

Since this is such a short book, either the first few minutes or the end of this meeting will be dedicated to discussing A Connecticut Yankee for benefit of those who missed the last meetup or didn't finish the book and want to discuss it. We'll play it by ear.

    We are usually in the back of the food court. When you are facing the carousel, we are on the right side, past the cupcake place (last food place). There's usually 2 or 3 of us.
