The Definitive Rothko: Book Signing at MFAH T he definitive, decade- in-the-making book on Mark Rothko — penned by the late Abstract Expressionist's children — has arrived. Mark Rothko (Rizzoli, $150) launches with a talk and book signing Saturday, November 12, at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Both authors will be on stage at the Lynn Wyatt Theater in the Kinder Building: Christopher Rothko, past Rothko Chapel board chair and chair of the chapel's Opening Spaces capital campaign, and Kate Rothko Prizel. At 386 pages with 275 photographs, this new volume promises to be the essential read on Rothko, highlighting iconic as well as never-before-seen canvases and paintings on paper; foldouts exploring the immersive Rothko Room at Washington, D.C.'s Phillips Collection and Houston's own magnum opus, the Rothko Chapel; and intimate family insights from the keepers of his flame. A book signing follows the authors' conversation with MFAH curator Alison de Lima Greene. Saturday, November 12, 2:30 pm, entrance included with MFAH general admission; info Catherine D.

The co-founder of Ike Kligerman Barkley (which will be rebranded in 2023 as Kligerman Architecture & Design, headquartered in NYC) heads to Houston Thursday, December 1, for cocktails, a talk, and signing of Shingle and Stone: Thomas Kligerman Houses (Monacelli, $75) at Greenwood King The Lobby. His latest volume — co-written by design scribe Mitchell Owens, World of Interiors' newly appointed U.S. editor — eloquently ranges across two decades, focusing on 13 homes, two in Texas. The dwellings are in inspiring locales of great natural beauty from the Hamptons and Lake Keowee, South Carolina, to Martha's Vineyard and Seattle. They're also united by their connection to the history of American residential architecture, especially the traditions of building with shingle and stone. Kligerman is an authority on his predecessors, early 20th- century Gilded Age icons McKim, Mead & White, and the lesser-known Bay Area Arts and Crafts talent Bernard Maybeck, among others. He attended Columbia University and received his Master of Architecture from Yale School of Architecture and serves on the boards of the Design Leadership Foundation and the Billion Oyster Project. His work has been featured in Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, and Veranda, and his firm has been recognized on the AD100 list. Thursday, December 1, 6 to 8 pm, at Greenwood King The Lobby, 3201 Kirby; RSVP to Catherine D.
