Your book club meeting will be hosted in and include a tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright designed, Peter & Emma Beachy House in Oak Park.
In 1906, Emma Beachy, the daughter of Peter Fahrney, a successful doctor and real-estate investor in Chicago, commissioned Wright to renovate a Gothic cottage on Forest Avenue for her children and second husband, Peter A. Beachy. Wright’s renovations were dramatic and left little more than the foundation of the original structure intact. The resulting house is situated on the northern corner of its large lot, a strategy that maximizes the exposure to natural light.
Your prize includes snacks and drinks for you book club members.
Also included are up to twelve $10 gift cards to The Book Table (an Oak Park based book store)
Your book club meeting prize is to be scheduled to occur at the earliest possible date of mutual agreement to Elizabeth Berg, the Beachy house homeowners and your club.
