Welcome to this very special June where we celebrate the Flappers, Art Deco, silent movies and ‘talkies,’ brilliant books and maybe a gangster or two during that crazy decade, the 1920s.
Participation is easy–this event is not strictly about books: films, plays, music, sports, pop culture and anything else you can think of that happened in the 1920s is game. Then post on your blog, Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #JazzAgeJune and we’ll retweet or like you. In the comment section below you can also share links to your social media posts.
Thanks for joining in and have fun!
