Former Madeira School headmistress Jean Harris, who is in prison for the 1980 killing of Scarsdale diet author Dr. Herman Tarnower, has a book now in the stores. In "Stranger in Two Worlds," she writes of Tarnower: "There hasn't been a day I haven't mourned him. There hasn't been a day I haven't missed him. There hasn't been a day I haven't inadvertently called someone else Hy."
The 62-year-old Harris wrote the book at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in Westchester County, N.Y., where she is serving a 15-years-to-life sentence for killing Tarnower after she discovered another woman's clothing at his Purchase, N.Y., home. Still angry about her conviction, Harris writes that "to live each day with the knowledge that I am responsible for Hy's death . . . is the worst punishment of all." Proceeds from the book will be used to educate the children of prisoners at the Bedford Hills women's prison. Georgetown's Changing Scene
The restaurants of Georgetown are changing. Charlie's, the premier jazz club that went bust last year, has been sold to Capital Management and Development Corp. and is about to become a new art deco night spot, yet to be named, with dancing featuring the music of the 1920s, '30s and '40s. Paul Cohn, a spokesman for Capital Management, said yesterday his firm bought the right to operate a restaurant at that location from former Washington nightclub owners Tom Curtis and Frank Polar.
*Capital Management has also recently purchased two other longtime Georgetown landmark spots -- Chez Odette and Maison des Crepes. Chez Odette, which for years was a moderately priced French restaurant, is now called J. Odette and specializes in northern Italian food. Maison des Crepes will soon be called Paolo's and will feature something called "California Nouvelle Italian." Royal Watch: Wedding Wear
The big wedding is July 23. If you haven't received your invitation by now, you must resign yourself: It isn't coming. Still, there is always the option of getting all dressed up and sitting down in front of the television to watch Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson and their 1,500 guests at Westminster Abbey.
For those who are going, there are some dressing tips that are also suitable for those dressing to watch TV. Charles Kidd, one of the editors of Debrett's Peerage, the last word in royal protocol, recommends afternoon dresses for the women -- "not a long dress and not too glaring, clashing or showy, as would take the attention off the bride." Because Queen Elizabeth will be there, hats are required, but narrow brimmed so as not to block the view. For the men it's top hat, cutaway coat and vest in black or gray, with gloves. Only the immediate family wears buttonhole flowers. And don't forget: Men should polish the instep under their black laced shoes. Out and About
Now that's power. The Stouffer Concourse Hotel in Los Angeles is delaying its official opening because Bob Beavers, the doorman of Washington's Mayflower Hotel, is on vacation. The 59-year-old Beavers, who won the 1985 Doorman of the Year Award from the American Hotel and Motel Association, was to travel to Los Angeles to train the doorman there. He won't be able to do that until he returns from vacation, so they say Los Angeles will wait . . .
