Coleman Public Library to show
“The Great Gatsby” Movie
March 29th, 10:00 am
Library Community Room
Our Friends at the Cross Plains Library have been celebrating the Big Read Program, the month of March, with the works of “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald. They were kind enough to share 35 copies of the book in paperback form and lend a copy of “The Great Gatsby” (1949) movie starring Alan Ladd, Betty Field, MacDonald Carey, Ruth Hussey, Barry Sullivan, Howard Da Silva and Shelley Winters.
The Big Read Program, an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest, the NEA Big Read broadens our understanding of our world, our communities, and ourselves through the joy of sharing a good book. Showcasing a diverse range of contemporary titles that reflect many different voices and perspectives, the NEA Big Read aims to inspire conversation and discovery.
NEA Big Read annually supports approximately 75 dynamic community reading programs, each designed around a single NEA Big Read selection.
The Coleman Public Library will show the movie Wednesday, March 29th, at 10:00 am in the Library Community Room.
Everyone attending the movie will receive a free copy of the book, “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
