Welcome to One Island One Book
In March, the Monroe County Public Library's Key West branch is holding its first One Island One Book event -- and we'll be reading "To Have and Have Not" by Ernest Hemingway. This novel, by Key West's most famous writer, is set in Key West during the Depression and provides a vivid portrait of the island during one of the most harrowing time in the island's history. (A movie based on the novel -- sort of -- stars Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall -- but bears almost no resemblance to the book's plot.)
