'Building Taliesin: Frank Lloyd Wright's Home of Love and Loss' Book Event at Monona Terrace
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.
McCrea will talk about 'Building Taliesin'
as part of the Monona Terrace lecture series, "The Wright Design Series," with his talk, "Discovering the Lost Taliesin." A book signing will follow the talk.
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.
