Celebrate 25 years of Susquehanna Life magazine with the magazine’s founder and publisher Erica L. Shames’ photography exhibit at the Public Library for Union County in Gallery 255 throughout the month of March.

Erica L. Shames started the Susquehanna Life magazine, which has attracted subscribers nationwide, in 1993 to highlight the “positive aspects of life” in 25 PA counties. The magazine celebrates its 25th anniversary this year.

The exhibit is a retrospective of high-quality images--a hallmark of the magazine--that have appeared in Susquehanna Life magazine as well as those Shames took on exhibit at the Susquehanna Life magazine gallery at 217 Market Street in Lewisburg. 

Explore photos taken regionally and from around the country and the world, including New Mexico, Italy, New York City, Washington, DC, Florida and more. All images--most are depicted on canvas--are available for sale.

Susquehanna Life magazine was named Small Business of the Year by the Greater Susquehanna Valley Chamber of Commerce and identified by Folio Magazine as a “Small Magazine We Adore.” Erica was recognized as one of Pennsylvania’s Best 50 Women in Business, and was featured on WVIA-TV’s Northeast PA Business Journal recognizing outstanding entrepreneurs. Erica received national recognition when she was named to Folio’s 2016 class of Top Women in Media, honoring a select group of women hand-picked by the Folio team to represent the best and brightest.

Erica is a graduate of Leadership Susquehanna Valley and frequently is invited to talk to service groups, students and businesspeople about the life of an entrepreneur. Erica also serves as a Mentor for Susquehanna University’s Internship Program, and as an advisor to students interested in careers in magazine publishing and writing.
