Dear Friends of the F. Scott Fitzgerald Literary Festival,


Another hard year is behind us, but I hope you are managing well and enjoying the New Year.


Although our Festival was virtual again this year, we hope that you enjoyed your participation.  We had very successful virtual events, including a Book Club discussion, a movie night with discussion, 2021 Short Story contest awards and readings, an evening of readings sponsored by The Writer’s Center, and of course our main day event.  None of these would have been possible without your support!


We are thrilled to announce that we have chosen Richard Powers as our 2022 Honoree.  You may recognize him as the author of Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Overstory.  His latest book, Bewilderment, was shortlisted for the 2021 Booker Prize. With almost 10 months until the 2021 Festival, you have plenty of time to read all of Power’s brilliant books.


The Committee is already commencing the work on planning the 2022 Festival and accompanying events.  As in prior years, our success will depend on people like you as well as our major supporters, the City of Rockville and the Arts and Humanities Council of Montgomery County. Please remember to renew your membership in 2022 ($35 a year) online at  Your membership dues and donations are critical to our success as we transition back to an in-person Festival in 2022.


With best wishes,


Gary Berg-Cross, President
