Southern Literary Salon - Fizgeralds
Southern Literary Salon and Brunch
Boats Against the Current: F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald
curated and directed by Stephanie Shine
Sunday, January 27 at Noon
at The Memphis Hunt and Polo Club
Sponsored by Anne O. Keeney in memory of Mr. Joseph Orgill, III
Join us for jazz, brunch, and the writings of F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald acted out in the beautiful ballroom of the Polo Club. When the “golden girl” of Montgomery, Alabama, met St. Paul’s party-penning author, a romance as complex and unpredictable as the new jazz age would light America on fire. F. Scott and Zelda would create self-reflective literary works so clear of form and period as to place them in the vanguard of what we now call the Jazz Age and of the Lost Generation: The Great Gatsby, This Side of Paradise, The Last Tycoon, and Save Me the Waltz.
The elegant brunch buffet and cash bar opens at Noon with seating through 1:30 pm. TSC actors will read and act the Fitzgeralds’ works from 1:30-2:30 pm. Tickets are $55 and include all but the cash bar. Attire: cocktail/business casual. Limited seating. Host members: Margaret and Owen Tabor.
