Another writer, neighborhood resident and yoga enthusiast, Erin J. Shea, joins us at The Frunchroom on September 29th.
Erin is a mom, wife, student, runner, yogini and neat freak. She has been writing for as long as she can remember, though these days with all of the adulting she does at her day job as head of editorial for Weber Shandwick’s Chicago office, and myriad volunteer projects, most of her work is distilled to 500-word brain dumps in a Word file on her MacBook Pro.
She is a frequent writer and performer in Chicago,
though, appearing at literary series such as Funny Ha-Ha, Guts & Glory, The Paper Machete and The First Time reading series. Erin’s work online at ejshea.com has been recognized by the New York Times, MSNBC.com, the Chicago Tribune, Good Morning America, Women’s Health, Shape, O, The Oprah Magazine and more. In 2011, Shape magazine named ejshea.com one of the “20 Blogs That Keep Us Happy and Sane.” In 2005, her book, Tales from the Scale, was named one of the top six health books of the year by the Wall Street Journal. She can stand on her head.
Erin lives in Morgan Park and will discuss what led her to move here from the North Side to raise a family.
