Erin is the author of three Weird and Wonderful Words books, The Secret Lives of Dresses, and The Hundred Dresses. She’s written regular columns for The Boston Globe and the Wall Street Journal, served as an advisor to the American National Corpus and the Wikimedia Foundation, and serves on the KPCB Design Council.
