PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Caroline Fraser's Pulitzer Prize-winning historical biography Prairie Fires: The American Dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder masterfully fills in the gaps of what has previously been known about Wilder's life. Fraser draws on unpublished manuscripts, letters, diaries, and land and financial records to chronicle Wilder's story of relentless struggle, rootlessness, and poverty, as well as her tumultuous relationship with her journalist daughter, Rose Wilder Lane. Wilder's real life was much harder than what she portrayed in the Little House on the Prairie series, and her success remains one of the most astonishing rags-to-riches episodes in American letters.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
When architect Philip Johnson died in 2005 at the age of 98, he was one of the most recognizable and influential figures on the American cultural landscape. Johnson introduced European modernism to America through the sleek glass-and-steel structures that now dominate our cities, but he was also a man of deep paradoxes: he was a Nazi sympathizer, a designer of synagogues, an enfant terrible into his old age, a populist, and a snob. The Man in the Glass House lifts the veil on Johnson's controversial and endlessly contradictory life to tell the story of a charming yet deeply flawed man. Mark Lamster is the architectural critic for the Dallas Morning News and a professor in the architecture school at the University of Texas at Arlington.
6:00 p.m. Take a stroll from the DMA to explore Thanks-Giving Square, one of the many iconic buildings Philip Johnson designed in Dallas, led by an expert on the architecture of downtown. Tour tickets are priced separately from the event and are $10. Pre-registration required.
