Literary Connections: Gatsby in Connecticut

F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece, The Great Gatsby, has become synonymous with the lifestyle of the rich and famous on Long Island. But what if that connection is false? The argument that the real West and East Egg can be found on the other side of Long Island Sound is brilliantly argued in the 2020 documentary, Gatsby in Connecticut: The Untold Story. Join us for a screening of this film!
