Join the Friends of the Milwaukee Public Library in welcoming author Elizabeth Wright to Centennial Hall on Thursday, July 15, at 7:00 p.m. Wright, the granddaughter of Frank Lloyd Wright, will speak about her book Dear Bob, Dear Betty --the love story of her parents which developed by correspondence during the Great Depression.
In 1932, Llewellyn Wright (Bob), Frank Lloyd Wright's youngest child, whose adolescence was marked by the public scandals surrounding his father's private life, is struggling to begin a private law practice in Chicago. Elizabeth Kehler (Betty), daughter of a Chicago artist, is working as an intake counselor at the Milwaukee Vocational School. Their fervent correspondence over a 10-month courtship is witty, sassy and poignant, as they grapple with their passionate feelings and try to create a financially stable marriage.
