Erika VanDam, Owner and Fearless Leader of RoscoeBooks
Erika is a refugee from cubicle-land who quit her job in ad sales to open RoscoeBooks. As a girl growing up in Massachusetts, Erika read everything from Judy Blume and Nancy Drew books to her mom's cookbooks and the Audubon Field Guide to Birds (seriously)...and her love of reading has only grown over the years. A proud resident of Roscoe Village, Erika lives just down the street with First Husband Jeff and their adorable, vivacious daughters, Caroline and Alice. When not working at RoscoeBooks or hanging out with her family and friends, Erika enjoys cooking, running, and reading a mix of fiction and nonfiction.
