The Shorewood Historical Society and Boswell Book Company will co-host an evening with Nicholas D Hayes and Taliesin’s Catherine Boldt (Educational Outreach Docent) as they discuss Hayes’ findings in the new book FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT’S FORGOTTEN HOUSE: How an Omission Transformed the Architect’s Legacy.
This “virtual” event (via zoom) will feature a discussion of Wright’s first attempt to design affordable housing via his American System-Built Homes project; what worked and didn’t work and how Shorewood’s Elizabeth Murphy House (and ASBH Model 203) contributed to the program’s demise yet lives on as a prime example of Wright’s ASBH thinking. There will be a reading, views of the tiny house highlighting historic details, Q&A, and Boswell’s will offer personalized books to interested participants.
The ZOOM event will be held on May 17th, 2021 at 7pm (Central). Register here. Space is limited.
*Note that the time has changed. The event was originally scheduled for May 18th, but had to be shifted to the 17th to sync participant calendars. If you registered previously, you should have received a notice of this change.
