Ramsey County Historical Society Presents

David Page, Aha! Moments in Writing F. Scott Fitzgerald in Minnesota

History Revealed Series
July 27, 2017
Thursday, 7 p.m.
Ramsey County Library – Roseville

Free and open to all.

Join RCHS for a new series, History Revealed, featuring the best of local history authors talking about a wide range of topics drawn from the heritage and traditions of Ramsey County.

Working on any book provides plenty of surprising moments for the author. David Page will take a look at the moments when he discovered information that momentarily stunned him during the writing of his new book, F. Scott Fitzgerald in Minnesota. These “Aha” moments may have initially been a revelation, but in hindsight they made perfect sense.

David will be available after the presentation for questions and for signing his newly released book, F. Scott Fitzgerald in Minnesota: The Writer and His Friends at Home. Books will be available for purchase.

David Page is an author, historian and presenter who has extensively written, researched and lectured on the life and times of F. Scott Fitzgerald, the Civil War, Sinclair Lewis and other subjects. David is a board member of the F. Scott Fitzgerald Society. He currently teaches English and journalism at Inver Hills Community College.
