Program Description


If you like American pop culture, you will enjoy this trip back in time to the 1920's where modern American culture began. The period between the Great War and the Depression is one of exciting social and historical change. Meet the youth of "The Lost Generation" who revolted against society's most time honored conventions. Get to know the "brilliant men, beautiful jazz babies, champagne baths and midnight revels" spoken about in movie ads.

Learn about the history, music, fashions, fads and follies of the time and find out why "the good old days" our grandparents talked about really were the good old days. In addition to an entertaining and informative slide presentation, sound and video clips of the era will bring the period to life.

Presented as part of the Sarasota County One Book and Centennial programming.
