Chicago-based writer and author
Elaine Soloway uses her wit, wisdom, and overall badassery to show
us that it’s okay to challenge the status quo and shake things up
at every stage of life. At a lively 81 years young, she is still
challenging herself daily and living life for herself instead of
trying to please others. Elaine also discusses how she came to
flourish in the urban area of Chicago, the rituals and habits she
practices to stay energetic and sharp, and her family’s story that
inspired the series “Transparent”.
