JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – As part of his critically acclaimed undertaking to retype 100 classic novels, artist Tim Youd will continue the series at the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum with a performance of Ernest Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms.

Youd will spend 9 days in Hemingway's studio working on the exhibit.

He will retype the entire novel on a single piece of paper, utilizing the same make and model typewriter used by the author.

He covers the paper with a top sheet so that the underlying page receives the indentation from the keys but not the ink.  The result is a highly formal yet very surprising diptych.

Hemingway wrote the majority of A Farewell to Arms when he and his second wife, Pauline Pfeiffer, settled at her family's home in Piggott for a brief period of time in the 1920s.

The home and a barn that Hemingway converted into a writing studio are open to the public.

The exhibition will take place from Tuesday, Feb. 4, through Wednesday, Feb. 12, at the museum located at 1021 W. Cherry St. in Piggott.
