A Fun Read!

When I was a student studying architecture, I was introduced to Frank Lloyd Wright's work as the main school of thought for my studies (when you study architecture, whatever university you're enrolled in will teach to a well-known architect's particular style.). My college's school of thought was Wright's.

Therefore I was delighted when I recently came across T.C. Boyle's book The Women, which is based on the women in Frank Lloyd Wright's life. I met T.C. Boyle several years ago when I worked as a Community Relations Manager for Barnes & Noble in Denver. Boyle was friendly and kind (not all authors are). Anyway, here's a look at some of Wright's well-known work and the cover of Boyle's novel. Happy reading!

If you've never visited a building of Wright's, do so and
 allow yourself to be wowed by an architectural genius.

Until next time...
