'Building Taliesin: Frank Lloyd Wright's Home of Love and Loss' Book Event in Madison
Through letters, memoirs, contemporary documents and a stunning assemblage of photographs, many of which have never before been published, author Ron McCrea tells the fascinating story of the building of Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin, which would be the architect's principal residence for the rest of his life. Photos taken by Wright's associates show rare views of Taliesin under construction and illustrate Wright's own recollections of the first summer there and the craftsmen who worked on the site.
The Friends of University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries will host author Ron McCrea for a book talk about 'Building Taliesin,'
at First Unitarian Church. A book signing will follow.
Ron McCrea is a prize-winning journalist and former city editor of The Capital Times in Madison. He appears in the E! Entertainment Network's documentary, "Mysteries and Scandals: Frank Lloyd Wright" and the BBC's "Frank Lloyd Wright: Murder, Myth and Modernism," and wrote the script for "The Making of Monona Terrace: Frank Lloyd Wright's Last Public Building," a finalist at the New York Film Festival.
