Pageturners, Schoolcraft College’s book discussion club, will host three student-led book discussions and a movie screening this month focusing on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic, The Great Gatsby.
On Thurs., Feb., 13 at 10 a.m. students, faculty, staff and the community are welcome to a special screening of the 2013 movie version of The Great Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Three additional student-led book discussions will be held on Mon., Feb. 17 at 4 p.m. and Tues., Feb. 18 at 1:30 p.m. in the Bradner Library on the main campus in Livonia and on Thurs., Feb. 20 at 4 p.m. at the Radcliff Center in Garden City.
The Great Gatsby may be the most popular classic in modern American fiction. Since its publication in 1925, Fitzgerald's masterpiece has become a touchstone for generations of readers and writers, many of whom reread it every few years as a ritual of imaginative renewal. The story of Jay Gatsby's desperate quest to win back his first love reverberates with themes at once characteristically American and universally human, among them the importance of honesty, the temptations of wealth, and the struggle to escape the past.
All Pageturners events and activities are free and open to the public. Copies of the selected books are available at the Schoolcraft College Bookstore at a discounted price. Visit the Pageturners website for more information
