Illinois ConnectionHemingway was born and raised in Oak Park, Illinois.
Biographical and Professional InformationErnest Hemingway was a novelist, short-story writer, and journalist. He is considered to be one of the major American novelists of the 20th Century. Several of his books were adapted for the big screen. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1954. A little known fact about Hemingway: "In 1918, while serving on the Italian Front as an ambulance driver for the Red Cross, 18-year-old Ernest Hemingway was struck by an Austrian mortar shell while handing out chocolate and cigarettes to soldiers in a dugout. He was knocked unconscious and shell fragments entered his entire body, including his head, legs, and hand. After he regained consciousness, Hemingway picked up a badly wounded Italian soldier and carried him to the first aid dugout; he later said he didn’t remember how he got back. He was awarded the Silver Medal of Military Valor." (Publishers Weekly, ''7 Authors Who Almost Died'' by Gabe Habash -- May 15th, 2012)
