"The Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park" by Jane King Hession gives the house its very own literary crown of laurels, an illustrated volume describing the effort and acts of will and determination on the part of the clients who saw to the house’s being built, and on the part of its rescuers, who assured the house would be saved -- for, several decades after its conception in 1948, the Kraus House came close to having an unforgiving appointment with demolition.

"Except for the everlasting need to raise money to support the house and its programs, all is well in this part of the Sugar Creek Valley, and the good health includes lagniappe: The house now has its book.

"The book will be available at the gift shop adjacent to the house on Sunday, Dec. 13, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The house itself will not be open then. The $25 book is also available online and at the AIA St. Louis Chapter's Book Store in the Lammert Building downtown; at the Webster Groves Book Shop and The Novel Neighbor in Webster Groves; The Sheldon Art Galleries Gift Shop in Grand Center; and in the Delmar Loop at Subterranean Books. ~ KMWU-1 St Louis Public Radio
