“After retirement at 85, I joined a writers workshop at our local Senior Center. It was expected that I would submit a story each week and so my project began. The pattern all along was one story per week. The end result is this book."

Esther Bogen, an avid learner with a wealth of life experience and a penchant for writing, has completed her first book “Short Memoirs of a Long Life”: a gripping and potent life spanning literary journey that will sweep readers into the past and experiences of a tenacious woman.
About her work, Bogen says: “After retirement at 85, I joined a writers workshop at our local Senior Center. It was expected that I would submit a story each week and so my project began. The pattern all along was one story per week. The end result is this book. I hope readers enjoy it as much as I have enjoyed writing it and living the life that it is based upon.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Esther Bogen’s poignant tale is a wondrous tapestry of words woven from the threads spun on the spinning wheel of life.
Beginning with her early years with her Bubby “grandmother” in 1930s New York, Esther goes on to weather a tumultuous marriage during World War II; the prejudices, as well as the hospitality, of the Southern states; living as a single women during the post-Baby Boomer era; and includes an entertaining glimpse into the swinging era of the 1960s and 70s. Currently at 91 years of age she lives in Hewlett Long Island, New York with her partner, Stanley.
