Fulton Mansion's last parlor chat of the year will feature a book club style discussion of Frank Furness: Architecture and the Violent Mind.

Frank Furness' energy, confidence, brashness, vulgarity, and full-throated love of life vibrate in his architecture. This first biography details his abolitionist upbringing in staid Philadelphia, the horror of war, and its translation into aggressive architecture—train stations, banks, and libraries—and illuminates his influence on his century and the world.
