The Shorewood Historical Society, the Shorewood Public Library, 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.
This “virtual” event (via zoom) is open to everyone, everywhere and 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 is offering personalized books to interested readers.

Author Nicholas Hayes will take Saint Johns residents on a video and photographic tour of the Elizabeth Murphy House, a 103-year-old 960-square-foot cottage designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. Nick will highlight Wrightian features and flaws and describing the work he and his wife have done to restore and preserve the historic home. The presentation will feature many of the famous architect’s drawings, describe the tiny home’s dramatic life, feature artifacts found in the home during renovation, and leave ample time for questions and answers.
