St. Louis County Library HQ, 1640 S. Lindbergh
St. Louis County Library presents best-selling author Paul Hendrickson, who will sign and discuss his new book Plagued By Fire.
Bestselling author Paul Hendrickson presents an illuminating biography that will change the way we understand the life, mind, and work of America's premier architect–Frank Lloyd Wright. 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, his often alienating behavior. This is the Wright whom Hendrickson reveals in this masterful biography. In showing us Wright's facades along with their cracks, Hendrickson helps us form a fresh, deep, and more human understanding of the man behind the genius.
