Frank Lloyd Wright and film

Three Sundays in November we present Wright Reels: The Taliesin Fellowship and Film.

Local filmmaker Risé Sanders-Weir will introduce each film. On Nov. 17, special guest Mariamne Whatley will speak about the Fellowship and her parents' experience there, as shared by her mother in the book Taliesin Diary: A Year with Frank Lloyd Wright.
