READ GATSBY-DISCUSS GATSBY is the blog to go to if you are part of The Big Read. In addition to Vigo County, Indiana, the following communities have been selected to participate in The Big Read and have chosen The Great Gatsby as the book they will be reading: Libertyville, IL, Sioux City, IA, Craven, Pamlico and Carteret counties of NC, Newark, OH and Charlottesville, VA. All are invited to post comments and questions on The Great Gatsby and The Big Read on this blog. At READ GATSBY-DISCUSS GATSBY we agree with F. Scott Fitzgerald, “Either you think, or else others have to think for you and take power from you, pervert and discipline your natural tastes, civilize and sterilize you.”

The Great Gatsby Public Service Announcement

This PSA supporting The Big Read has been modified for participating reading communities across the country. Do you think it catches the essence of what Gatsby is about? The readers in the PSA are all certain that they "Love this book!" but, after all, this is an ad. If you "love" this book, try writing a short PSA that gets at what you love about it. Or, on a more ambitious level, produce a video (30 sec. to 1 minute in length) that can be posted on this site. [I can download YouTube videos. That's the full extent of my technical expertise.]
