Maureen Corrigan, So We Read On: How The Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures

Thursday, September 18, 2014 at 6:30pm

Central Library, Poe Room 400 Cathedral Street, Baltimore, MD 21201

Maureen Corrigan, book critic for NPR's "Fresh Air" and Gatsby lover extraordinaire, offers a fresh perspective on what makes Gatsby great: its literary achievements, its debt to hard-boiled crime fiction, and its commentaries on themes of race, class, and gender.

Corrigan serves as critic-in-residence at Georgetown University. She is the author of Leave Me Alone, I'm Reading.
