Stu Wilson, president of Fitzgerald in Saint Paul, and scholar Dave Page will present a gallery talk about the exhibit Sight Unseen: Rare Photographs of F. Scott Fitzgerald with His Family and Friends and the new book F. Scott Fitzgerald in Minnesota, authored by Page with photographs by Jeff Krueger.
The book, published by Fitzgerald in Saint Paul, is a collaboration providing historical insights, stunning photographs and images, and the opportunity to re-examine and appreciate the many Minnesota connections found in Fitzgerald’s life and works.
The exhibit is presented in conjunction with the 14th International F. Scott Fitzgerald Society Conference in Saint Paul. F. Scott Fitzgerald is considered one of America’s greatest writers, and is known worldwide for his masterwork, The Great Gatsby. Fitzgerald was born in Saint Paul in 1896, and the new exhibit provides glimpses into his life with his family and friends, including a number of early photos from his days in Minnesota. Sight Unseen is presented by Fitzgerald in Saint Paul, the Saint Paul Public Library, and The Friends of the Saint Paul Public Library.
Free and open to the public, the exhibit will be on display in the Bremer Room on the 1st floor of the George Latimer Central Library, 90 West Fourth Street, Saint Paul, from June 24 through July 17. The exhibit will be open Saturdays from 1 to 4:30 p.m.; Mondays from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.; and Thursdays, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
