F. Scott Fitzgerald Literary Festival

Saturday, October 12, 2019

Festival honoree, award-winning, best-selling novelist and memoirist Amy Tan will be at the Festival on Saturday, October 12, participating with Mark Childress in “A Conversation with Amy Tan” and giving a reading from her work after accepting the Fitzgerald Award. Established in 1996 to celebrate the centenary of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s birth in the city where Fitzgerald, his wife, and his daughter are buried, the F. Scott Fitzgerald Literary Festival is co-sponsored by the City of Rockville and the F. Scott Fitzgerald Literary Conference, Inc., a non-profit corporation. It has for 23 years held this event, which seeks to honor the works of F. Scott Fitzgerald and those of prominent American literary artists; and to support, encourage, and assist aspiring and emerging writers and students interested in the literary arts. Originally a one-day event, the Festival now includes programs on three days.
