Friday, April 09, 2021 | 6:30 p.m.
Since The Great Gatsby’s debut in 1925, it’s been dismissed, beloved, misunderstood, interpreted, reinterpreted, and deified among the greatest American novels. This year, Gatsby enters the public domain, ensuring a new creative crop of reimaginings. Why, after almost a hundred years, do we keep finding ways to explore this novel? Join scholar and critic Maureen Corrigan, author of So We Read On: How the Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why it Endures for a discussion of the past, present, and future of Fitzgerald’s novel.
So We Read On is available for purchase at our Bookshop.org storefront.
