This Week, in 1918.

EH 2532P
On July 8, 1918, Ernest Hemingway was wounded by a trench mortar in Italy, while working as an ambulance driver during WWI. It’s no secret that Papa is a Pencil Hero here at Pencil Revolution. But I thought this would be a good opportunity to draw attention to an excellent website.

Biographile is about discovering the world through biography and memoir.

I am one of those people who enjoys reading about the writers whose works I admire. As such, I enjoy that site immensely. Check out this piece on the writer with whom Baltimore likes to associate itself the most (such as The Ravens!). I have a large Poe biography that’s been gathering dust for a year and a half that I might have to heave down from the shelf and delve into soon.
