Read the book then watch the movie together.
...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.The Great Gatsby is one of the great classics of twentieth-century literature.

    Update on book for next month: I was unable to get a used copy from frugal muse or half price books. I did just get an email from the library that my book came in, I was #79 on the list so I don't know how that works. I'll snatch mine and if someone still doesn't have a copy in a week, let me know and I'll share mine.

    I did get an email code for (2) "Lovers" pizzas from Pizza Hut for $8.75/each. Not sure where the plan is to order pizza from, but that is a really good deal.

    Sorry I won't actually make this event. I'm moving to a smaller place and sold some furniture and appliances. The people need to come for things Monday and Tuesday and I only have help disassembling and moving on Monday night from my son and nephew.

    Well the movie is not at Market Square, nor on On Demand or available for rental, so we will go with our usual pizza, discussion and dessert (Malted Milk Chocolate Pots de Crème, if I can get it made on time).

    I've had a hard time getting a copy of the book from the library, but I did find a couple places online you can read it for free.

    Where is this movie still playing in Madison , or are we going to 'rent' the movie and then watch it together ? Maybe I am too old fashioned for that still.

      I don't think it will be available for rental by July, but the hope is that it will be at Market Square (cheap and ~5 minutes from my house, where we are meeting).

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
