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.

Erica Bauermeister is the bestselling author of four novels, including The School of Essential Ingredients and The Scent Keeper. She has a Ph.D. in literature from the University of Washington, and has taught there and at Antioch University. She is a founding member of the Seattle7Writers and currently lives in Port Townsend, Washington, in the house she renovated with her family.

Jennie Shortridge is the author of five novels, including Love Water Memory and When She Flew, and is currently working on a memoir. Her books have been translated into several languages, optioned for film and TV, and selected as American Booksellers Association’s Indie Next picks and Library Journal’s Editors’ Picks. A lifelong volunteer, she was the co-founder and executive director of Seattle7Writers, a nonprofit collective of Northwest authors who raised money and awareness for literature and literacy from 2009 to 2019.
