The Novel The Great Gatsby Celebrates its 90th Anniversary Today
Today marks 90 years since The Great Gatsby was published, feel old yet? 😸👌
The book has come a long way and is by far my favorite book, also like many of yours too. The ‘jazz’ age is a beautiful time period and this novel captures it so well.
