One hundred ten years ago today, at the Queen Anne Victorian on the 300 block of N. Oak Park Ave., future Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winner Ernest Hemingway was born. If you’re a fan and don’t have plans for this evening, pencil in a 7 p.m. stop at the local museum that honors the influential writer.

Tonight the Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park is hosting a lecture by Hemingway biographer Paul Hendrickson. After Hendrickson’s lecture, “Looking for Hemingway through the Prism of the Pilar [his fishing boat],” there will be singing of birthday wishes, cake and, we’re told, a sparkling grape juice toast.

The museum is at 200 N. Oak Park Ave. Admission is $8-$10. For details, call 708-848-2222 or e-mail ehfop@sbcglobal.net.
