Late Blooming Gen-X Weirdo
In a series of candid, reflective, sometimes humorous essays, Sari Botton describes coming to feminism and self-actualization as an older person, second (and third and fourth)chances-and how maybe it's never too late to find your way...assuming you're lucky enough to live long. Botton describes "finding" yourself later in life-after first getting lost in all the wrong places. As she discovers, the wrong places famously include her own self-suppression and misguided efforts to please others (mostly men). She’s a writer, editor, teacher and the editor-in-chief of Oldster Magazine, an online publication de-stigmatizing and normalizing aging by demonstrating that it's happening to everyone, of all ages, all the time. She edited the award winning anthology Goodbye to All That: Writers on Loving & Leaving NY and its NY Times bestselling follow-up, Never Can Say Goodbye: Writers on Their Unshakable Love for NY. Her work has appeared in the NY Times, New York Magazine, The Sun,The Village Voice and Harpers Bazaar.
