From the exalted to the inexplicable, the prominent public edifices of Washington (as well as many less imposing, if not necessarily less likable, structures) are cataloged in Pamela Scott and Antoinette J. Lee‘s new Buildings of the District of Columbia. The authors, whose judgments sometimes seem soft but whose scholarship never does, discuss their book at 6:30 p.m. at the Historical Society of Washington, 1307 New Hampshire Ave. NW. FREE. (202) 785-2068. (MJ)
