The Great Gatsby reading marathon TODAY

January 23, 2014

The Literature Section hosts its annual IAP mobile reading marathon of a crowd-pleasing work of literature. For IAP 2014, you are invited to read F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby (1925). MIT Community members will each take turns reading from the novel until it is finished in its entirety. The reading will be followed by a screening of Baz Luhrmann’s 2013 film adaptation of the novel, starring Leonardo DiCaprio. The event will be held on Thursday, January 23, 10am-8pm. Drop in, and excuse yourself at any time. The event is mobile, so it will be in four different places throughout the course of the day. For more information, contact Sandy Alexandre at for any questions. Don your flapper dress, felt fedora hat, or something 1920s appropriate if you have it! Photo by RhonsTopModel.
