Program Description

Event Details

Mamah (MAY-mah) Borthwick's relationship with Frank Lloyd Wright is remembered chiefly for its having ended in her tragic murder in Wisconsin in 1914. Much less is known about their affair during the previous decade in Oak Park. 

In this program, Mark Borthwick, a distant relative of Mamah's, will draw on his new biography of her— and more—to reveal surprising facts about this pivotal period in her life and that of Frank Lloyd Wright.

This event is co-sponsored by the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust.
