Description

Guests talked about the life, works and legacy of author F. Scott Fitzgerald in an effort to learn about the Jazz Age and "the Roaring Twenties." "The Jazz Age," which F. Scott Fitzgerald coined, or the "roaring 20's" as it came to be known, was a period of decadence, youth, and rebellion in a post-World War I era. It was during this time that Fitzgerald and a large group of young writers came to the forefront: Ernest Hemingway, Gertrude Stein, John Dos Passos, Henry Miller and numerous others. Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda traveled throughout Europe, as members of the "self-exiled expatriates" looking for artistic inspiration, intellectual growth, and a good time. Fitzgerald became a major voice for his generation. His works, including The Great Gatsby, offer an insider's look into the leisure class. He vividly brought social issues like class status, as well as an abandonment of more traditional values to the general public.
