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.
