This classic story of wealth, love and corruption takes place on the North Shore of Long Island in the 1920s. Midwesterner Nick Carraway has moved there to learn the bond trade and is captivated by the social life and moral depravity of his rich friends, Tom and Daisy Buchanan. When Nick's neighbor, Jay Gatsby, enlists Nick's help in reigniting a love affair between him and Daisy, Nick witnesses how low the upper class can sink as they pursue wealth and pleasure at any cost. This jazz-age masterpiece will be coming to the big screen in May starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Sign-up begins Wednesday, March 13 at the adult reference desk.
