Author & Preservationist Ron Tanner


“From Animal House to Our House: A Love Story”Preservationist and do-it-yourself hero Ron Tanner will discuss his  funny, heart-warming book, “From Animal House to Our House: A Love Story”. Combining romance with history and humor, Tanner tells the true story of  how he and his wife bought condemned property - a wrecked former frat house - and restored it to its original Victorian splendor. His realtor said, “Don't do it. This place will eat you alive!”. In 2008, the couple’s home was featured in This Old House magazine. Tanner will sign his book following the program, and copies will be for sale from the Friends of the Library. Recommended for teens and adults.
