COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Bookworms in the Chattahoochee Valley continued their celebration of a famous American author on Wednesday night.
The Chattahoochee Valley's Big Read lecture at the Carson McCullers Center for Writers and Musicians focused on the wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald, Alabama native Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald.
Dubbed by her husband as "the first American flapper," she features prominently in his writings – indeed, he even lifted passages from her diaries and included them in his novels.
"Tonight is a presentation by Willie Thompson who's the Director of the F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald Museum in Montgomery, AL," said Henry McCoy with the Chattahoochee Valley Libraries. "It is a part of The Big Read which is our month-long celebration of F. Scott Fitz Gerald's great novel 'The Great Gatsby.'"
The next event in the Big Read lecture series will take place Tuesday, April 28 at the Columbus Museum.
