Join us for our monthly book club at the Pub! April's book is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

What's up with the green light? And the giant billboard with the eyes? Come talk about these questions and more in April, when we host our discussion of Fitzgerald's classic The Great Gatsby. Guaranteed to be more fun than your high school English class! On its first publication in 1925, The Great Gatsby was largely dismissed as a light satire on Jazz Age follies. Today, it is acknowledged as a masterpiece: a love story, an exploration of the American dream and arguably the greatest American novel of the 20th century. Narrator Nick Carraway tells the story of his neighbour Jay Gatsby, whose parties at his Long Island mansion are as lavish as his past is mysterious. Yet Gatsby cares only for one of his guests: his lost love Daisy Buchanan, now married and living across the bay. In Fitzgerald’s hands, this deceptively simple story becomes a near-perfect work of art, told in hauntingly beautiful prose.
