F. Scott Fitzgerald Day
by eponymous
Date: Saturday May 14, 2022
Time: 10am - 5:00ish
F. Scott Fitzgerald Day! Something new!! In lieu of our usual 4th Wednesday of the month discussion, we will be holding an all-day event focusing on the (in)famous American author, F. Scott Fitzgerald.
The morning will begin with a discussion about the man and his life, based on your individual research (Google, Wikipedia, an autobiography, etc.). This will be followed by a field trip to Rockville to visit his TWO burial sites. Of course, we will then have lunch at Fontina Grille around 1 pm. The final event of the day will be a chance to watch one of the versions of The Great Gatsby, which is the optional reading for this event.
