It’s fall, and Bolton Hill is alive again! Celebrate F. Scott Fitzgerald’s birthday

Friday, Sept. 24 at 6:30 pm, is the last in the popular summer Arts in the Parks series of free concerts.  They were hosted in neighborhood outdoor settings by BHCA and adjacent Marble Hill and Madison Park community associations.  This one celebrates the neighborhood’s most famous literary figure.  (The earlier programs were well attended. See Zhee Chatmon’s photos.)

Scott Fitzgerald was born in Minnesota on Sept. 24, 1896, but lived on Park Avenue  Bolton Hill during a critical point in his career as a 20th century novelist.  The birthday party will feature readings, ragtime music and gin and tonics.  The event also will honor Frank Shivers, the longtime Bolton Hill resident and historian who in the 1970s helped establish Fitzgerald Park at Bolton and Wilson streets.

Lots of activities coming up in the next four weeks.  Click through for details.
