'Gatsby in Connecticut' at Ventfort Hall

LENOX, Mass. Filmmaker and director Robert Steven Williams will show his documentary film "Gatsby in Connecticut," at Ventfort Hall Mansion and Gilded Age Museum on Saturday, May 21 at 3:30 pm. 
 
The seventy-minute film will be followed by a discussion about the making of the documentary by Mr. Williams. Attendees are encouraged to wear 1920's inspired attire. 
 
A special tea will be served following the program.
 
According to Williams, the writer's inspiration came not from his time spent on Long Island's Gold Coast, but rather from the wild summer of 1920 in Connecticut where the Fitzgeralds lived next door to a mystery millionaire who threw wild parties.
