More than Just Hemingway’s Wife: The Wartime Journalism of Martha Gellhorn

March 7th @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

Many may know Martha Gellhorn as one of the many wives of fellow journalist and literary giant, Ernest Hemingway; however, she was so much more. Although just a budding journalist during the Spanish Civil War, Gellhorn would later witness and cover many of pivotal moments of World War II and the rest of the 20th century.
