“The Great Gatsby”

Sunday, February 26, 2023, from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m., in the Heritage Room.

Tuesday, February 28, 2023, from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m., via Zoom.

The Banned Book Club will discuss The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzerald. As noted on Wikipedia, “The Great Gatsby is a 1925 novel by American writer F. Scott Fitzgerald. Set in the Jazz Age on Long Island, near New York City, the novel depicts first-person narrator Nick Carraway’s interactions with mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby and Gatsby’s obsession to reunite with his former lover, Daisy Buchanan.” The novel includes consideration of social class, wealth, gender, race, environmentalism, and the American Dream. “The Great Gatsby is widely considered to be a literary masterwork and a contender for the title of the Great American Novel.”

“Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther…. And then one fine morning—So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
