The February Fulton Mansion Parlor Chat will be a book club style discussion of Three American Architects: Richardson, Sullivan, and Wright, 1865-1915.

The book discusses the individual and collective achievement of the recognized trinity of American architecture: Henry Hobson Richardson (1838-86), Louis Sullivan (1856-1924), and Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959). The book shows how each envisioned the building types demanded by the growth of 19th-century cities and suburbs—the downtown skyscraper and the single-family home.

**Books are readily available from many online book vendors for a very affordable price.
