Eleanor Lanahan is not F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald’s daughter, she’s their granddaughter, and the book she’s plugging, Scottie: The Life of Frances Scott Fitzgerald Lanahan Smith, is not about her illustrious/notorious grandparents, it’s about her nonfamous mother, Frances Scott Fitzgerald Lanahan Smith, and her struggles with illustrious/notorious parents, various husbands, a schizophrenic son (attributed, across the generations, to Zelda), etc. In what should be a talk titled “Fame by Association: A Multigenerational Approach,” Lanahan reads from her book at 7 p.m. at Politics & Prose, 5015 Connecticut Ave. NW. FREE. (202) 364-1919. (James Lochart)
