“Eileen Flanagan is a Quaker writer who you're going to hear a whole lot more about in coming years. She's just finding her voice nationally–and what a voice it is!”—David Crumm, editor of Read the Spirit
Eileen Flanagan's most recent book is about how to apply the Serenity Prayer in daily life—to accept the things we cannot change and change the things we should change. The Wisdom to Know the Difference has been endorsed by the Dalai Lama and won a Silver 2010 Nautilus Book Award. It also made the Top 10 Books in NW Philly list compiled by WHYY, the Delaware Valley's NPR affiliate, as well as two other local bestseller lists.
Eileen is also a popular facilitator and speaker, appearing on television, radio, at national conferences, and on college campuses. A graduate of both Duke and Yale, she lives in Philadelphia with her husband and two children. Read Eileen's biography or book her to speak through the enclosed links.
Eileen is currently working on a new book about living a sustainable life in an unsustainable system. Her hope is being kindled by her work with Earth Quaker Action Team and the broader climate justice movement. On February 13 she was arrested with 47 others in front of the White House, protesting the Keystone XL Pipeline. Here is an article about that work.
