You're invited to a presentation of
by Ron Tanner
at Northtown Books
Sunday, July 8, 2:00 PM
join us for some hilarious tales and
sound advice about fixing old houses --
includes an awesome slide show!
"Ron Tanner's life is a testament to the power of hard work, a big heart, blind romance, and even outright idiocy. What does he have to show for it? Only a beautiful house, a loving marriage, and now this inspiration of a book. Pass me my hammer!"
-- Chris Jones, ESQUIRE More >
Ten years ago, Ron and his then-girlfriend, Jill, did the impossible. They bought condemned property -- a big Baltimore Victorian brownstone – and vowed to bring it back to its original glory. The house had been home to Baltimore's most notorious fraternity for a decade and now, wrecked and abandoned, it was filled with garbage. As if that weren't daunting enough: Ron and Jill had been dating for only six months and they knew nothing about fixing up old houses. Friends, family, and concerned onlookers told them not to do it – they would surely lose their shirts and their love in the bargain.
