Pelican Book Club: The Great Gatsby

You voted, and the results are in! This spring we will be reading that 20th century American classic, F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby! We're so excited to find that there was so much interest in this novel. (If you didn't vote for this one, not to fear- we made special note of all our runners up and plan to come back to them in the future.) But right now one of the big questions that seems to be circling around our tribe is the problem of defining a "classic" and whether or not a work less than 100 years old could possible fit into this description or be worthy of study. Perhaps Jay Gatsby will help fuel that discussion for us, as well as many more threads of rich conversation about that timeless question: what does it mean to live a good life? 

We hope you'll join us on April 6th at 1:00 Pacific Time/ 4:00 Eastern for a journey back to the Roaring Twenties and another foray into the Great Conversation!
