The Romance, Writing, and Art of F. Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald
OLLI at UConn invites you to a special event!
F. Scott Fitzgerald is well known as the voice of the jazz age, and his wife Zelda was the quintessential flapper. While Scott’s writing has long been lauded, Zelda’s writing and art are only now beginning to be appreciated fully. Research has shown that Zelda’s own writing informed Scott’s from the beginning of his career, even as his own writing offered him the path to claim her hand. The Fitzgeralds’ adult lives eerily reflected two drastically different decades—where their star had beamed with the Roaring ‘ 20s, they both descended into poor physical and mental health during the Great Depression of the 1930s. This lecture from Fitzgerald expert, Professor Taylor Hagood, will trace the lives and love of these two larger-than-life figures, focusing especially on the way their relationship drove and furnished material for their writing and art.
This event is free for OLLI members, and $10 for non-members.
