Frank Lloyd Wright has long been known as a rank egotist who held in contempt almost everything aside from his own genius.
Harder to detect, but no less real, is a Wright who fully understood, and suffered from, the choices he made. In delving into these choices, neglected aspects of his story are revealed including the eerie role of fires in his life; how he was haunted by his father; the complexities of his close, and perhaps romantic, relationship with friend and early mentor Cecil Corwin; and the connection between the Tulsa Race Riot of 1921 and the murder of his mistress, her two children, and four others at his beloved Wisconsin home.
Join Gail Saltz and University of Pennsylvania Professor and author of Plagued by Fire: The Dreams and Furies of Frank Lloyd Wright, Paul Hendrickson in conversation for a fresh, deep, and more human understanding of the premier American architect.
