The Great Gatsby...and Co.
First...it was a book. Then came the film adaptations...the most famous starring starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow. However, it's worth remembering that F.

Fresh Air's book panel---Becky Toyne and Erin Balser---joined Karen to offer a guide to OTHER books that reflect that era.
