One event on June 15, 2019 at 12:30 pm
Read Ada Louise Huxtable’s biography of Frank Lloyd Wright in advance, then join us for this book discussion and tour at the Wright-designed Tracy House. Books are being held at the desk at the Des Moines, Kent and Burien Libraries – just ask there to check one out.
Bill & Elizabeth Tracy commissioned Wright to design their home and participated in its construction in 1955. One of Wright’s Usonian designs, the Tracy House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
