Dubbed the “first American flapper” by her husband, writer F. Scott Fitzgerald, Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald was Jazz Age royalty. The Montgomery, Alabama-born socialite married Fitzgerald in 1920, and though the marriage was turbulent and she suffered from mental illness, her creative brilliance lives on in her paintings and writing.
Today, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., The Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald Museum (919 Felder Avenue, Montgomery, Alabama, 36106) is hosting a celebration to honor her 115th birthday. Admission is free. Visit thefitzgeraldmuseum.org for more information.
