This Day In History

This day marks the anniversary of F. Scott Fitzgerald's masterpiece, The Great Gatsby. The book was first published in 1925 and remains a popular book in public schools across the country.

The Great Gatsby tells the story Tom and Daisy Buchanan and Jay Gatsby, as told through Nick Carraway's recollection of the events. The story takes place in Long Island during the roaring 1920's. Fitzgerald dubbed this era "The Jazz Age." It's a wonderful story and is one of America's greatest classics.
