Escape to Paris

Ernest Hemingway moved around the world a lot; in the 1920s, he lived in Paris, with his first wife.  A Moveable Feast is his account of that time, when he was a struggling journalist and writer.

In the 1964, after his death, his fourth wife reworked the unpublished manuscript and had it published.

And in 2010, Hemingway's grandson (by Hemingway's second wife), Sean, reedited the book, including sections that apparently were left out of the original.  A Moveable Feast, the Restored Edition is the result of research and includes personal family connections.

The wonderful world of Interlibrary Loan

The Library has a fantastic interlibrary loan system that spans North America, and we can usually find exactly what you're looking for.  Books and other media might take some time to arrive, but articles can generally be emailed within 48 hours.

Article, book, audio book, or dvd, drop by the library with as much information as you can find and we'll do our best to locate it for you. Even if you're off-campus, or can't find time to stop by the library, feel free to email (wmcclibrary@ccsnh.edu) or call (603-342-3087).  In most cases, we can email articles to you, so don't forget to give us your email address.

Remember, when you want an "A" on an assignment, planning ahead is essential!  Start searching as soon as you receive the assignment (visit the library for more information on searching for reliable materials).
