Opening Address with Paula McLain

In The Paris Wife, novelist Paula McLain made us privy to the secret longings of Ernest Hemingway’s elusive first wife, Hadley Richardson—the woman who fostered his earliest ambitions and helped him become the celebrated writer we admire today.  With Circling the Sun, McLain whisks us away to colonial Kenya of the 1920s, where we accompany the fearless Beryl Markham on her journey from abandoned child to horse trainer to pioneering aviatrix.  Along the way, we get a glimpse inside the Happy Valley Set, which included Isak Dinesen and Denys Finch-Hatton of Out of Africa fame.

An author of exceptional compassion and intensity, McLain has written two volumes of poetry, another novel and a memoir about growing up in California’s foster care system.  She now lives with her family in Cleveland, Ohio.
