From the venue:Award-winning writer and preservationist Ron Tanner makes a stop at the Atlanta Preservation Center — to offer a comic monologue about 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. They knew nothing about fixing up houses when they started. In 2008, This Old House magazine featured their remarkable work. Tanner's talk includes an impressive slide show.
