Boswell Book Company presents an evening with Kristine Hansen, author of Frank Lloyd Wright's Wisconsin: How America's Most Famous Architect Found Inspiration in His Home State.

Frank Lloyd Wright was born in 1867 in the rolling hills of Richland Center, Wisconsin, to a family of Unitarians and Quakers. Even with world-class commissions like New York City’s Guggenheim Museum, his organic architecture remains rooted in Wisconsin’s landscape, from affordable-housing prototypes in Milwaukee to his summer home and architecture school in rural Spring Green. This comprehensive guide to Wright’s designs (and those of his protégés) that are open to the public—as well as insider historical information about sites now demolished, and those available for “drive-bys” only—is for the architecture or history fan looking for tours, overnight stays or creative inspiration.

From Bobby Tanzilo, author of Hidden History of Milwaukee: "Frank Lloyd Wright's Wisconsin is a long-overdue look inside the Wisconsin works of Wisconsin's greatest architect and the people who inhabit and care for them. Hansen's great stories are also beautifully illustrated, making this a must for all fans of Wright, of architecture and of Wisconsin's history and treasures."

Based in Milwaukee’s Bay View neighborhood, Kristine Hansen is a nationally recognized food, drinks and travel author with articles published on the websites for Architectural Digest and Travel and Leisure and in Milwaukee Magazine, and more. She is also the author of Wisconsin Cheese Cookbook: Creamy, Cheesy, Sweet, and Savory Recipes from the State’s Best Creameries.
