The Scent Keep­er & House Lessons: Ren­o­vat­ing a Life

Many of you enjoyed Eri­ca Bauermeister’s first vis­it to San Juan Island for her debut nov­el, The School Of Essen­tial Ingre­di­ents, that went on to become a New York Times bestseller.

July 22, at 7:00 p.m. – via Zoom – she is return­ing to the San Juan Island Pub­lic Library for her recent nov­el, The Scent Keep­er, and her mem­oir, House Lessons: Ren­o­vat­ing a Life.

In asso­ci­a­tion with Grif­fin Bay and Darvill’s Book­stores, the San Juan Island Library presents a read­ing of House Lessons: Ren­o­vat­ing a Life, the new mem­oir by New York Times best­selling author Eri­ca Bauer­meis­ter, author of the nov­els The Scent Keep­er, The Lost Art of Mix­ing, and The School of Essen­tial Ingredients. 

The House in Port Townsend was dilap­i­dat­ed – to say the least; today it is the hap­py home for her fam­i­ly after much work.  Using her nov­el­is­tic skills, Eri­ca threads togeth­er a cast of mar­velous char­ac­ters, psy­chol­o­gy, and archi­tec­tur­al the­o­ry. She will share the joys – and pains (men­tal, finan­cial, psy­cho­log­i­cal, prob­a­bly others).

Just one of her delight­ful rumi­na­tions occurs near the sur­pris­ing end­ing: “The win­dows were chang­ing posi­tion – not much, just a touch in either direc­tion to accom­mo­date the restruc­tur­ing of a room or two. Roman [the archi­tect] had been adamant that we alter the exte­ri­or of the house as lit­tle as pos­si­ble, and thus the win­dows had tip­toed care­ful­ly across the plans, and I’d bare­ly seen the change on the paper.”

 Below are the details you will need to join the Zoom session.

San Juan Island Library is invit­ing you to a sched­uled Zoom meet­ing on Wednes­day, July 22 at 7:00 p.m.
