Gatsby Days in Excelsior Springs!
April 29, 2011
What is Gatsby Days you ask?
That was my question not that long ago, being a newcomer to the Excelsior area. Turns out, it's not a F. Scott Fitzgerald fiction festival, much to my own initial confusion and embarrassment. It's actually a celebration of Excelsior Springs's Prohibition Era history as a resort destination (Which even as a librarian I have to admit is far more fun...)
There are events all this weekend, including a carnival next door to the library! You can check out the flyer for a full calendar of events.
We're also hosting a student art display from Gatsby Days here at the library on Monday. So come by and see, or call us for more information at (816) 630-6721.
