Meet the Author: Tenemental

Meet the author Vikki Warner for a book presentation and signing of her book, Tenemental published by Feminist Press in 2018.

At age 26, Vikki Warner buys a run-down three-story house in Providence and suddenly, she's responsible for a rotating cast of colorful tenants, along with exploding plumbing, gentrification, and navigating the 2008 market crash. Told with grit and good humor, this debut memoir is a candid exploration into how sharing space profoundly reshapes our lives and forces us to grow into ourselves. 

Lunch & Learn: The Benefits of Downsizing/Rightsizing

It may be overwhelming to think about the clutter in your home and the items that you or a loved one have accumulated over a lifetime. Elena Nilan and Chad Clark of Simple Living Strategies, LLC will talk about the process of determining what’s essential and how to part with items that no longer serve you. Simplifying the stuff in one’s life will help you live independently and with dignity for many years to come.
