Baltimore Hosts Fitzgerald Society's 10th International Conference


The F. Scott Fitzgerald Society customarily meets in locations biographically and artistically significant to F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald and this year's is no exception. The 10th International Conference will take place from September 30 through October 3, 2009, in Baltimore, Maryland.

Fitzgerald’s memories reflect both his family’s Maryland heritage and the time he spent in Baltimore on and off from 1932 to 1937.  During this period he completed Tender Is the Night while living in a rented home called “La Paix” in nearby Towson; Tender was preceded by Zelda's novel Save Me the Waltz and her play “Scandalabra,” producedby the local Vagabond Junior Players. 

Celebrated novelist Madison Smartt Bell will be one of the conference keynotes. Bell is the author of nearly two dozen books, including the highly praised novels The Washington Square Ensemble (1983), Doctor Sleep (1991), and All Souls' Rising (1995). His presentation will be entitled "A Gilded Man in Nickel City."
