Maureen Corrigan Event

Award-winning book critic (NPR’s Fresh Air and The Washington Post) and professor Maureen Corrigan shares her bookish obsession with a great American novel in So We Read On: How The Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why it Endures. Brandishing her own Gatsby enthusiasm and using research into Fitzgerald as well as the book’s history and numerous editions (plus the stage and screen versions), Corrigan acts as a literary archaeologist uncovering the reasons why this book has (and hasn’t, in some cases) captured the American imagination. Michael Cunningham (The Hours) says, “Maureen Corrigan has produced a minor miracle: a book about The Great Gatsby that stands up to Gatsby itself.”
