Pequot Presents: Gatsby In Connecticut: The Untold Story

Pequot Presents: Gatsby In Connecticut: The Untold Story

More About Pequot Presents: Gatsby In Connecticut: The Untold Story

"The Great Gatsby", F. Scott Fitzgerald’s masterpiece, has become synonymous with the lifestyle of the rich and famous on Long Island. But what if that connection is false? What if the real West and East Egg can be found on the other side of Long Island Sound – right here in Connecticut? In this brilliantly argued 2018 documentary, director Robert Steven Williams and historian Richard “Deej” Webb have created a compelling argument that the town of Westport is the actual influence on "The Great Gatsby".

After the film, enjoy a discussion with the filmmakers as well as a book sale and signing of Webb’s latest work and companion piece to the film, "Boats Against the Current: The Honeymoon Summer of Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald". Light refreshments served. Free and open to the public. Registration recommended at publicprograms@pequotlibrary.org.
