Meet author Amy Cohen in a reading and discussion on her latest novel, The Late Bloomer's Revolution. This book is a sparkling and reassuring memoir, funny, heartwarming, and above all, real. Filled with observations sweet and bittersweet, this reading will be irresistible to all who believe their greatest moments are yet to come.
Amy Cohen always imagined that by age thirty she would be juggling a thriving career, a devoted English husband, and two adorable children who had shag haircuts and a room in their loft where they could play the drums. But at thirty-five, as she struggled to come to terms with the loss of her adored mother, she found herself between jobs, between boyfriends and between apartments. She didn't know how to cook. She didn't even know how to ride a bicycle.
Amy felt as if her life was behind schedule . . . way behind. The more time passed, the more difficult it became for her to believe that she would ever come into her own. The only thing that made her feel hopeful – and even determined – was the idea that she might be a Late Bloomer. She kept telling herself that things would change, that everything would happen for her, just not in the time she expected. As it turns out, she was right.
Amy Cohen was a writer and producer on the sitcoms Caroline in the City and Spin City, a dating columnist for the New York Observer, and the dating correspondent for cable TV's New York Central. She currently lives and works in New York City.
