F. Scott Fitzgerald’s THE GREAT GATSBY provides a glimpse of America’s Prohibition Era. How did alcohol ever become illegal in a country that consumes so much of it? What was life like during that time? Why did this “Great Experiment” fail and did any good result from it? Bob Garrett of the Archives of Michigan provides some history to serve as context for Fitzgerald’s work. Register - Village.
