Talk on F. Scott Fitzgerald At University Oct. 6

Princeton University’s Lewis Center for the Arts presents F. Scott Fitzgerald: New in Bookstores & Now Playing, a discussion of recent work in print and on screen showcasing the legacy of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Princeton Class of 1917, with noted biographer and Princeton alumnus A. Scott Berg ‘71 and author and editor Anne Margaret Daniel *99, who received her PhD from Princeton. The talk is on October 6 at 4:30 p.m. in the James M. Stewart ’32 Theater at 185 Nassau Street and is free and open to the public. The event is presented as part of A Festival of the Arts at Princeton University to celebrate the opening of the new Lewis Center for the Arts complex on the Princeton campus, October 5 through 8. 

Berg is the author of five bestselling biographies, and a consulting producer on the recent Amazon Original Series, The Last Tycoon, an adaptation of Fitzgerald’s final, unfinished novel set in 1930s Hollywood and starring Matt Bomer, Kelsey Grammer, and Rosemarie DeWitt. Daniel is editor of the recently published I’d Die for You and Other Lost Stories. The book is a collection of the last remaining unpublished and uncollected short stories and film scenarios by Fitzgerald, many written during the last decade of his life.

“These stories are predominantly from the middle- and late-1930s. They are not from the Jazz Age but from the Great Depression, and they feel like that,” said Daniel in a recent interview.
