Village Books is pleased to welcome Erica Bauermeister to the Virtual Readings Gallery where she will be in conversation with fellow author, Jennie Shortridge!
In her first book of nonfiction, bestselling author Erica Bauermeister renovates a historic house and takes readers on a journey to discover the ways our spaces subliminally affect us. A personal and accessible exploration of the psychology of architecture, and a loving tribute to the connections we forge with our homes.
