TU to host lunch and learn with Cairo author

Cairo author William Harris Strickland will take center stage as he discusses his novel “Hemingway Lies and the Search for Sam” during a lunch and learn event at Thomas University on Thursday, April 23.

Strickland, who lives in Cairo, works as a travel guide and booking agent for safari travel, fishing expeditions, adventure travel and legal excursions to Cuba at the travel company he founded in 1985. “Hemingway Lies and the Search for Sam” is his first novel.

The book focuses on Hawken Turner, who is rumored to be the illegitimate son of legendary writer Ernest Hemingway. After a tragic event claims the life of a loved one, Turner uses reckless behavior to numb the pain. He travels abroad as a safari operator but cannot leave behind the haunting memories.

The lunch and learn will be held at 12:30 p.m. on April 23 on the Sue Rumble Terrace on TU’s Main Campus. Participants are asked to bring their lunches and enjoy the conversation.

Books will be available for purchase at the event. Books are also available at the TU Bookstore and The Bookshelf. Strickland will be available to autograph books at the lunch and learn.
