The Great Gatsby Reading Schedule
Who doesn’t love reading a good book while soaking up some summer sun or lounging by the pool at Glen Ivy Hot Springs? This season, we’ve chosen a classic that is sure to make the long, warm days of summer more enjoyable. The roaring twenties come to life in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby – a time of excess, luxury and the American Dream – all mixed with a cold blindness to the hard consequences of materialism.
Although the book is short – only 9 chapters – the richness of the story and its parallels to today’s society lend it to slow, contemplative reading. I hope you will join us in what promises to be a lively and thoughtful discussion each week.
The reading kicks off on June 26th and continues each week through the last week of July:
Chapters 1 & 2: June 26
Chapter 3: July 3
Chapter 4: July 10
Chapters 5 & 6: July 17
Chapter 7: July 24
Chapters 8 & 9: July 31
