This book tells the story of the Taliesin Fellowship, created by Frank and Olgivanna Lloyd Wright in 1932, in the words of men and women who joined the Fellowship, some as early as the 1930s, and remained with it into the 1990s. Many of the storytellers worked side by side with Wright, who died in 1959, and almost all of them lived and worked with Olgivanna Lloyd Wright, who survived her husband by 26 years. The Taliesin fellows are joined by other storytellers who have been their partners in recent years and who know the Fellowship well. The Fellowship's origins and milestones in its history are documented here, as well as the dynamics that shaped its progress, its character, and its story. Readers will gain fresh and provocative insights into the genius and mystique of the Fellowship's creators and an understanding of Frank Lloyd Wright's amazing productivity, particularly in the last decade of his life. These stories will debunk some of the common caricatures that are a part of his legacy.
