Childhood summers spent fishing and swimming in a pristine Northern Michigan lake would later inspire Ernest Hemingway's The Last Good Country.
The newly-opened Hotel Walloon is borrowing that reference for the name of an upcoming weekend devoted to celebrating the literary giant's Michigan connection.
For three days, guests will have an opportunity to explore the famed author's boyhood hangout near Petoskey, and hear new details about his Michigan life.
Listen to the full segment above to hear Chris Struble, the president of the Michigan Hemingway Society, talk about what guests can expect in terms of tours, food, special guests and more.
You can get more information about the Hotel Walloon three-day event this weekend on their website.
