Organizers Cancel 40th Annual Ernest Hemingway Look-Alike Contest
DAVID GREENE, HOST:

This July contest typically attracts a nice crowd. But organizers point out it's easier to grow a snowy beard if you are on the older side, putting contestants at higher risk. For now, wannabe Papas can indulge in more solitary Hemingway-inspired pastimes like fishing, writing or drinking. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
