The Great Gatsby
Wednesday, September 20th, 7 PM

Reader’s Circle takes a break for the summer, so there will be no meeting in August. However, please join us for a special “back to school” session on September 20th in the clubhouse. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s, The Great Gatsby is on the syllabus, a classic that has appeared in American high school curricula for decades.  

The timeless story of love and social class continues to inspire interpretation. Many readers consider it to be a literary masterpiece; some would even choose it as THE Great American Novel. Do you agree? Come join in the debate! Our discussion will be led by Spencer Farmans, a retired English teacher and veritable Gatsby expert.
