Mark the centennial of Union Station and be part of the studio audience when KCPT’s Meet the Past with Crosby Kemper III returns for a conversation with a young, brash, and bold Ernest Hemingway, portrayed by local actor Rusty Sneary, at Union Station’s Regnier Extreme Screen Theatre.

Hemingway credited The Kansas City Star for shaping his inimitable writing style even though he spent a scant six months with the newspaper as a cub reporter. A 1918 Kansas City Red Cross recruitment effort steered Hemingway to Italy as an ambulance driver. His initial impressions of the Italian Front served as inspiration for Death in the Afternoon. A serious injury by mortar fire sent Hemingway to a Red Cross hospital for six months where he fell in love with nurse Agnes von Kurowsky. He immortalized his injury, romance, and other wartime experiences in A Farewell to Arms.
