Boats Against the Current : The Honeymoon of Scott and Zelda

Join us for a special Author Talk with award winning educator and documentary filmmaker Richard Webb.

Richard will tell the real story behind F. Scott Fitzgerald’s famous novel The Great Gatsby and its tragic hero, debunking the long-held belief that the book was solely inspired by the Fitzgerald’s time in Great Neck, across the Sound in Long Island.

Richard has located the true inspiration for one of the most captivating and iconic characters in American literature. Richard’s novel “Boats Against the Current” is a must read for anyone who is a Gatsby fan or interested in Connecticut history.

Richard Webb is award winning educator and a documentary filmmaker. He is also a featured presenter in the Connecticut Public Broadcasting Prohibition documentary Connecticut Goes Dry. He is a co-creator and co-producer with Robert Williams of a documentary film about the Fitzgerald’s in Connecticut.
