Discover why this F. Scott Fitzgerald classic is still relevant today.


For the second presentation in JCCC's 2017-2018 Great Books series, Paul Restivo, adjunct professor of English, will discuss "The Great Gatsby."

Fitzgerald’s novel is a mainstay for high school English classes, and entire university-level courses are dedicated to its study. Hollywood finds it a favorite, too, adding to its commercialized and romanticized reputation. 

Why should a 2017 audience study Fitzgerald's seminal work? Come see and appreciate the symbols and secrets that make Fitzgerald's work timeless.

The Great Books series is sponsored by the JCCC English and Journalism Department.
