'Wisconsin's Own: Twenty Remarkable Homes' Author Presentation in Beloit
"Wisconsin's Own: Twenty Remarkable Homes" opens the door to venerable homes throughout the state, satisfying our curiosity and illuminating the considerable contribution Wisconsin's historic homes have made to American residential architecture. Built for captains of industry, a beer baron, Broadway stars and more, these houses are a mix of public museums you may have visited and private homes you've been hoping for an invitation to explore.
Authors M. Caren Connolly and Louis Wasserman will give a presentation on Wisconsin's Own
at the annual meeting of Friends at Beloit Library. Refreshments will be served, and a book signing will follow.
Connolly and Wasserman have collaborated on projects for more than 20 years, including their previous books, "Updating Classic America: Bungalows," "Updating Classic America: Ranches" and "Cottage: America's Favorite Home Inside and Out." Both are graduates of Harvard University's Graduate School of Design, Caren in landscape architecture and Louis in architecture. In addition to writing books, they share an architectural practice, Louis Wasserman & Associates in Milwaukee.
