Launch of Late Bloomers: A Book About Young Women.
Late Bloomers is a collection of short fiction comprising seven short stories about female adolescence and early adulthood. It is based on interviews the author conducted with girls and women about their lives. It was written to comfort those who have questioned identity, God, parents, and death; femininity, honesty and gender. The collection challenges our culture’s convictions about what makes a young woman.
