Book Club Meeting

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

A movie featuring Leonardo di Caprio as Jay Gatsby is scheduled for release on 26 December. In addition to the book club meeting, we are organizing a "Page Turners Goes to the Movies" date for Friday, 28 December.


This exemplary novel of the Jazz Age has been acclaimed by generations of readers. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when The New York Times noted “gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession,” it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.

    Hi there, I am so sorry that I couldn't make the discussion today, I'm certain that it was a lot of fun! I got within 20 pages of the end, our dog has been bleeding out of his nose all week so it's been my whole life. Finally got the house clean again last night. It's been most challenging in many ways. Very bummed that I missed the talk. I love this book, the prose is amazing along with the imagery, WOW! Thank you for the opportunity. -Amy F.

    We had an interesting discussion about the similarities between F. Scott Fitzgerald's life and the one he writes about in the Great Gatsby. We all felt that the book needed to be placed in the context of the time it was written.
