YPG Bay Area Launches Book-to-Film Club with The Great Gatsby

The Young to Publishing Group (YPG) is an initiative of the Association of American Publishers (AAP) that provides opportunities for entry-level and junior employees to build a community outside of their own publishing houses and to educate themselves about the industry as a whole.

Saturday May 11, 2013
Time and Location TBD

“Gatsby? What Gatsby?”

Perhaps you remember it vaguely from English class, or perhaps you re-read it once a year – whatever your personal relationship with F. Scott Fitzgerald’s greatest work, share your thoughts at our first Book-to-Film Club event on Saturday, May 11.

Baz Luhrmann’s Gatsby hits theaters May 10, and Leonardo DiCaprio stars in the title role (we’ll resist the urge to put a dozen exclamation points after that one). Along with Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, and Joel Edgerton, this all-star cast will not let you down… or will it?

We’ll have two groups – one in Berkeley, one in San Francisco – meet for a matinee screening, then we’ll head to a nearby bar for what’s bound to be a lively discussion.

RSVP by May 8 and indicate whether you prefer to meet the Berkeley or San Francisco group. We’ll contact you on May 10 to confirm the showtime and location.
