Historical Society Tea and Presentation

City of West Chicago

     Historical Presentation Explores the Fascinating Story of Mamah Bouton Borthwick, Her Relationship with Frank Lloyd Wright and the Role of a Modern Woman Living in a Victorian World.

     Join the West Chicago Historical Society on Sunday, June 10, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. at the West Chicago Community Center, 306 Main Street, West Chicago, for their Second Annual Spring Tea Fundraiser. The Historical Society will feature Mamah Bouton Borthwick, as played by Ellie Carlson.

     Mamah was brutally murdered in August of 1914 at Taliesin in Spring Green, Wisconsin, the home she shared with Frank Lloyd Wright. Mamah struggled to understand the circumstances of her relationships and how a woman's own desires can be reconciled to the larger goals of womankind and society at large. As a modern woman living in a Victorian world, Mamah will tell her story and take questions from the audience. This program may not be suitable for children.

     Join the Historical Society for this entertaining tea luncheon; a silent auction will also be held to benefit the Society. Reservations are required, please contact Sara Phalen at 630-473-0268 or to reserve your spot today. Tickets are $15.00 per person.CONTACT INFO
