Museum invites readers to get "lost"

PIGGOTT, AR (KAIT) – The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center in Piggott invites readers to get "lost" in three good books.

The museum announced Tuesday it is hosting a Lost Generation Reading Club and Retreat in September.

Registration is $100 and includes meals throughout the weekend retreat, as well as three novels which can be read throughout the summer.

The Lost Generation books were written in the 1920s and 30s by such authors as Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gertrude Stein, John Steinbeck and others.

On September 5-7, participants will meet at the museum for expert-led discussions on the books. They will also enjoy a film screening and a 1920s dinner party, which non-participants are invited to attend for $35.
