At home with Hemingway

The Ernest Hemingway Foundation of Oak Park recently named Oak Park and River Forest High School senior Tamsen Cronin (class of 2017, which will be the centennial of Hemingway’s graduating class) the winner of the inaugural Hemingway Foundation student writing competition. Held this past spring in conjunction with the English Division at the high school, Tamsen’s essay, “At Home in Oak Park/River Forest,” earned her a $1,000 college scholarship, administrated through the Oak Park and River Forest High School Scholarship Foundation, and a writing mentorship with the Hemingway Foundation’s Writer in Residence during her senior year at OPRF. The award will be presented during the Hemingway Birthday Benefit on July 23 at the Oak Park Public Library.
