Late Bloomers: A Book About Young Women

Late Bloomers is a collection of short stories 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 convictions about what makes a young woman. 

Kristy Hoffman has written for the Winnipeg Free Press and was a columnist for SANDBOX magazine. She is a journalism major in Creative Communications. She enjoys spending time in Israel and New York City.

$5.00 from every book will be donated to Osborne House, a shelter/safe place for women and children.
