Kim Bixler’s family owned Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1908 Edward E. Boynton House in Rochester, NY from 1977 to 1994. During its construction, the world-renowned architect was frequently on-site, supervising all details, including the design of the furniture (seventeen pieces still remain in the prairie-style house).
Kim (Brown) Bixler ’91 just published her latest book, Growing Up in a Frank Lloyd Wright House, and can be seen in the PBS documentary Frank Lloyd Wright’s Boynton House: The Next Hundred Years. Kim will recount the tumultuous history of the house through an engaging multi-media presentation of family photographs, historical documents and personal anecdotes. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear firsthand the unforgettable story of growing up in a home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
Kim Bixler has written and edited Get a Clue: Guide to Cornell University and Ithaca, NY, 365 Great Things About Atlanta, The Cigar Book, Austin from Boston and My Twin, My Friend. She currently lives with her husband and two teenage children in Manhattan Beach, CA.
