'Wisconsin's Own: Twenty Remarkable Homes' Book Talk in Franklin
"Wisconsin's Own: Twenty Remarkable Homes" from the Wisconsin Historical Society Press 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 be at Franklin Public Library talking about the making of 'Wisconsin's Own'
on May 7. 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.
