Larry Good

Join Interabang Books with prominent Dallas architect Larry Good to discuss his book A HOUSE FOR TEXAS, a reflection and passionate cry for help with the historic Elbert Williams House. We will be live on Facebok on Wednesday, December 9 at 6 pm, so be sure to join in.


In his opening essay, author Larry Good describes the Elbert Williams House as “the most important house built in the state of Texas.” He contrasts it with other, more traditional houses of the 1930s – representing “the conservative fashions of the times” – that were designed by local prominent architects. And finally, he laments that the house’s significance and its position in the overall context of Texas’ architectural history may not be fully understood by most people. This is a legitimate concern, which A House for Texas addresses fervently through accomplished writing and striking photography, providing us with hope for the survival of the most influential house of the 20th-century in our great state. The house has been comprehensively documented by architectural photographer Charles Davis Smith.
