Sam Watters, author of Houses of Los Angeles,1885-1935, will be discussing the homes of Eva Fényes tonight @ 7:30pm. Her homes are just two of 75 historic, famous, and outlandish homes Watters explores in his new set of books.

A watercolorist and an insatiable traveler, Fényes built and lived in two well-known Pasadena houses. How well known are they? One is the first Moorish style house in Pasadena and the other one is now part of the Pasadena Museum of History!

The unique architecture of these homes, the interior details and the famed gardens ensured they would make the pages of his Watter's book. He'll talk about Eva Fényes, her art, and her grand visions as she worked with architects to create two very unique homes. We hope he'll talk about the ceilings in the Moorish house on South Orange Grove!
