The Thoughtbook of F. Scott Fitzgerald

For the week of December 1st, 2013

In the early 1900s, a young F. Scott Fitzgerald befriended the children of some of St. Paul’s wealthiest and most prominent families. At age 14, he recorded his day-to-day experiences in a journal. These early writings provided inspiration for his later successful but tragically short literary career. On this week’s Access Minnesota, Dave Page, editor of “The Thoughtbook of F. Scott Fitzgerald” shares his insights on one of Minnesota’s most prominent writers.

  • Guest: Dave Page, Professor at Inver Hills Community College, author of “F. Scott Fitzgerald in Minnesota: Toward the Summit,” co-editor of “The St. Paul Stories of F. Scott Fitzgerald,” and “The Thoughtbook of F. Scott Fitzgerald,” published by the University of Minnesota Press
  • Issues: F. Scott Fitzgerald’s early diaries and childhood; How his childhood influenced his later writing; What more the city of St. Paul could do to honor Fitzgerald’s legacy
