Museum After Dark: Gatsby in Connecticut

November 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Gatsby in CT Fairfield Museum

Scholars have dismissed the influence of the Fitzgeralds’ idyllic period in Connecticut, but Westport holds answers to questions that can’t be answered by only studying Long Island. This fascinating realization was at the heart of the documentary written by Richard “Deej” Webb and Robert Steven Williams in their film that combines real detective work with a paean to the Jazz Age: GATSBY IN CONNECTICUT: The Untold Story.  Webb also recounts the work it took to create the film in the companion book Boats Against the Current: The Honeymoon Summer of Scott and Zelda (available in the Museum Shop for signing)Join us to learn more about this fascinating exploration into the past of Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald.

Reception: 6:30 – 7pm; Presentation: 7pm. Members; Free: Non-Members; $5.
