The Big Read: Fitzgerald in West Hollywood, A Walking Tour
One of West Hollywoods 25th Anniversary of Cityhood Celebration events, this 1-hour walking tour is aimed at building community and expanding literacy through the arts with the community reading of a selected book under The Big Read initiative. This month it's The Great Gatsby, whose author, F. Scott Fitzgerald, lived and died in West Hollywood. Two staggered tours (2-3 p.m. and 3:30-4:30 p.m.) departing from the Chase Bank Building on the Southwest corner of Sunset Boulevard & Crescent Heights (former site of The Garden of Allah), will show you some of the places Fitzgerald lived in and frequented during his time in West Hollywood.
