Revisiting Wright’s Architectural Achievement

Sunday, April 8, 8 a.m. to around 8 p.m.

Politics and Prose invites you to explore the wonder of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural masterpiece, Fallingwater, a destination for more than 80 years and a perennial P&P favorite. Politics and Prose is leading a community trip to the woods of western Pennsylvania, near the Maryland border, where you can enjoy the spring bloom and explore the house known worldwide as a resonant feat of architectural achievement.

The group will meet downstairs at Politics and Prose at 8 a.m. for a breakfast of coffee and bagels before departing the store at 8:30 a.m. The group will be taking the same coach bus (which includes a restroom, outlets, and wifi) both directions, and there will be a showing of Ken Burns' documentary on Frank Lloyd Wright during the morning drive to western Pennsylvania. Once there, participants will be going on a guided tour of the estate, as well as being given ample time to explore the grounds, take photographs, enjoy lunch in the café, and visit the gift shop. Please wear comfortable walking shoes.

Participants might also enjoy Fallingwater: The House and Its History (Dover, $16.95), a comprehensive guidebook with 118 illustrations.


If you have any questions, please email Justin Stephani (jstephani@politics-prose.com).

Return Policy: Refunds are only guaranteed up to seven days before the trip.
