During the Big Read orientation in Minneapolis, we met our Annapolis neighbors who are currently hosting their own city read of THE GREAT GATSBY just down US 50 East. Being the home of the Naval Academy and St. Johns College (3rd oldest in the U.S.), the Annapolis Big Read has engaged Naval Midshipmen in the book and a Gatsby Croquet Match on the campus of St. Johns (April 20, 2008). Festivities end April 30. Seems as if there's an opening on their calendar the night of our kick off for THE BIG READ - D.C. on April 24th.
