Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel, members of Elevator Repair Service – actor Scott Shepherd and director John Collins – visit the Poetry Center to read from the work and discuss the adaptation, which New York Times critic Ben Brantley called “one of the most exciting and improbable accomplishments in theater in recent years.” The event is introduced by Oskar Eustis, artistic director of the Public Theater, where Gatz premieres in September.

Wed, Sep 22, 2010, 12:00pm

Bruce Frankel, moderator

This talk is for boomers facing the second half of life and wondering “What’s next?” Author Bruce Frankel says not to worry… there is life after 50!

Frankel shares his collection of true inspirational stories to show that boomers looking 60 in the face can live their dreams and succeed in doing the improbable and the significant.
