Appearance: Women's College Club of Pittsburgh

I recently had the honor to lunch with the Women's College Club of Pittsburgh. The meal was incredible: roast pork with porcini mushrooms, wild rice, and green beans, and for dessert, a generous piece of apple pie.

Diane Owen gave me this opportunity to share a meal and a slideshow presentation about Kentuck Knob with these gracious ladies and gentlemen. I took Diane and her husband, Dave, on a private tour of the house and grounds at Kentuck Knob in September. Both retired educators, she from a Pittsburgh high school and he from Carnegie Mellon University, they have that lifelong learner attitude that I subscribe to myself, one of the reasons I head a continuing education program at a Frank Lloyd Wright house.

I was able to share a bit of Kentuck Knob with the club through a wonderful photo slideshow provided by Jason Jack Miller. The group was so enchanted by the home and Sculpture Meadow that they are planning a Spring visit.

Many thanks to the members for making my presentation a delight.
