Winter Read Kickoff: Maureen Corrigan and “So We Read On”

To kick off the 2024 community-wide Winter Read of “The Great Gatsby,” join us for an evening with Maureen Corrigan, book critic and author of “So We Read On: How the Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why It Endures.”

Registration is required. A book signing will follow. This event will also be livestreamed, and a recording will be available to view through March 15.

Maureen Corrigan is America’s most trusted and beloved book critic. Her distinctive voice is at once incisive and accessible, like a well-read friend who always sends you home with a good book to read. For more than twenty years Maureen has been the book critic for NPR’s “Fresh Air.” She is also a columnist for The Washington Post and The Nicky and Jamie Grant Distinguished Professor of the Practice in Literary Criticism at Georgetown University. She is the author of two books of her own: “Leave me Alone I’m Reading” and “So We Read On: How the Great Gatsby Came to Be and Why it Endures,” which was named one of the ten best books of the year by Library Journal. Aside from her writings for The Washington Post and The Village Voice, Maureen has also written reviews for The New York Times, The Boston Globe and The Nation among others. She serves on the advisory panel of The American Heritage Dictionary, is an associate editor of and contributor to Mystery and Suspense Writers, as well as the winner of the 1999 Edgar Award for Criticism. She has served as a juror for the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction and has also been on the judges’ panel for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize.
