Official Book Club Selection: A Memoir According to Kathy Griffin by Kathy Griffin
“This is not my usual choice for a book. I expected this book to be all laughs and no seriousness but that was surprisingly not the case. This book dealt with hardships, had some laughter but overall was an interesting read. Kathy Griffin also grew up in Oak Park so it is interesting to hear her discuss this area in her memoir….”

Loving Frank by Nancy Horan
“After checking out dozens of copies of Loving Frank since it came out in 2007, I decided to check it out for myself. What I found was a tragic tale of love and loss between one of the world’s most renowned architects, Frank Lloyd Wright, and the wife of one of his clients. Filled with architectural and local references, this fictional novel gleans much from the historical record as researched by the author. A well drawn presentation of Wright and Mamah Borthwick Cheney takes readers on a journey through this historic time and their ill-fated affair that shocked and stunned early 20th century America.”
