More Loving Frank Resources

Thanks to everyone who came out for our August meeting to talk about Loving Frank by Nancy Horan. Below are a few more resources related to the people and events in the novel.

Swedish feminist writer Ellen Key plays a significant role in the novel. If you are interested, Mamah Borthwick's translation of The Woman Movement by Ellen Key, which is discussed in Loving Frank, is available to download and read, in its entirety, through Google Books. You may find it here.

Many other works by Ellen Key are also available, including The Morality of Woman and Other Essays, which was also translated by Mamah Borthwick.

A couple people at our meeting brought the following Youtube videos to our attention. Both provide insight into the character and personality of Frank Lloyd Wright, which Horan captures so well in her novel.

First is Frank Lloyd Wright's 1955 appearance on the TV quiz show "What's My Line?":

Then, watch Frank Lloyd Wright in conversation with Carl Sanburg, talking about Thomas Jefferson:
