It's hard to believe this week will see the 10th issue of the new Wright Society weekly newsletter published! Every week we scour the headlines to curate the Wright-related stories we know our readers will enjoy. This week we have some nostalgic homeowner stories, an Aaron Green house tour, and info about an exciting Wright-related 100th anniversary.
As always, Keep Calm and Wright On!

Celebrate The 100th Anniversary Of Wright's Burnham Block
Join Wright in Wisconsin on Thursday, September 22, 2016 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the Golden Rondelle Theater on the SC Johnson campus in Racine, Wisconsin for the celebration of the 100th Anniversary (1916-2016) of the construction of the Burnham Block in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Mike Lilek, curator for the Burnham Block, will share information about this lesser-known phase of architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s career. Lilek, an authority on the American System-Built Homes, will talk about Mr. Wright’s challenge in building a community around beautiful, affordable small spaces which provide not only shelter, but also heighten their own awareness of the world and their connection to it. Following this Community Interest Program, a special 1-1/2 hour evening tour of the SC Johnson Campus will be available. Be sure to follow the link to RSVP for this exciting event. Read more.
