Hello Beautiful!

Act Four: Roof Leaking on Landmark Wright House

What do you do if you're ninety-one years old, have little money to spare, and your roof leaks? And what if the problem is further complicated by the fact that your house is one of Frank Lloyd Wright's earliest and most important designs?

Chicago Public Radio's Lynette Kalsnes takes us to west suburban Riverside. Her report originally aired August 8, 2005, during our news broadcasts.
