Reimagining Gatsby Free Webinar: May 15, 4 PM EST

The Great Gatsby is one of America’s most beloved novels. It has been reimagined for film, stage, and soon to be graphic novel. What is it about this novel that endures?

• Blake Hazard. She oversaw production and wrote the foreword to the upcoming Great Gatsby graphic novel. She’s Scott and Zelda’s great-granddaughter.
• Dr. Maureen Corrigan, a professor at Georgetown University, she’s the book critic for NPR’s Fresh Air
