The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald

This winter Kimberly and her class will dig in to this masterpiece by F.Scott Fitzgerald. It’s a CRIME that most Americans read this masterpiece in high school and never look back. The book has so much to offer the adult in each of us.

Pretty, wacky Daisy and fascinating Jay and New York at the shaky heights of American optimism—who can resist?! The structure is fascinating and the prose gorgeous. Fitzgerald offers a master class in dialogue, narrative stance, pacing and style—in a foundational text that is a delicious read. We will meet twice and barely scratch the surface of its genius but you’ll leave each section feeling like a better reader. Join us for this classic that will make you so happy you picked it back up.

A copy of The Great Gatsby is included in the price of the Seminar and should be picked up at Kepler's (and read) prior to the meeting date.
