Great Gatsby alive and well in Boston, 83 years later

Today's New York Times features an article about how F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic novel The Great Gatsby is taught in urban high schools today. The reporter visited Fenway High School and Boston Latin School to interview students and teachers about the book's relevance, with a focus on how young readers think about the American Dream. Pictured here in English class at Boston Latin School are Shannon Murphy (left) and Maxson Izidore-St. Louis.
