RECEPTION AND READING WITH FLLW GRANDCHILDREN ELIZABETH & TIM WRIGHT AT CHICAGO'S RARE NEST GALLERY - 3433 NORTH KEDVALE AVE.

[b]Dear Bob, Dear Betty: Love and Marriage During the Great Depression with Elizabeth Catherine Wright and Timothy K. Wright[/b]

Space is limited, and [b]reservations are required[/b]. Via reply to this post or 708-616-8671

Join Rare Nest Gallery as we host brother and sister Elizabeth and Timothy Wright in reading letters written by their parents Robert Llewellyn Wright and Elizabeth Bryan Kehler.

In 1932, at the height of the Great Depression, two young people meet and fall in love. 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 who abandoned the family when she was still in the womb, is working as an intake counselor at the Milwaukee Vocational School. Their fervent correspondence over a 10-month courtship period is witty, sassy and poignant, as they grapple with their passionate feelings and try to create a financially stable marriage in the midst of the 20th century's most serious economic crisis.

The couple's daughter, a scholar of French literature, has written an Introduction telling their story before and after the courtship. 35 illustrations, extensive footnotes and an Index illuminate the family and social history behind the letters.

What a grand idea. Naturally, Wright-o-philes will be listening for tidbits having to do with The Old Man and his doings, as well as his interactions and influences on the younger generations.

Best wishes, and thanks for posting here !
