"Growing Up in a Frank Lloyd Wright House" by Kim Bixler

Book cover

"Growing Up in a Frank Lloyd Wright House" weaves the stories of guiding architectural tours at age eight and living with the public’s curiosity along with tales of the habitually leaky roof, falling plaster, constant renovations and the tumultuous history of Wright’s Boynton House. The beauty of Wrights’ designs and endurance of his legacy are a testament to his genius. Kim Bixler was fortunate to spend seventeen years growing up in a Frank Lloyd Wright house built in 1908 for Edward Boynton and his 20-year-old daughter, Beulah. Fascinating stories and incredible photographs make this historical house an unforgettable tale.
