Every week, The Thread checks in with booksellers around the country about their favorite books of the moment. This week, we spoke to Brian Roegge from Chapter 2 Books in Hudson, Wis.

This biography of Frank Lloyd Wright describes the architect’s life through the lens of tragedy, including the murder and arson at his famous architectural site, Taliesen.

“The author goes into great detail. The research he did on the book is unbelievable,” said bookseller Brian Roegge.
