5 OVER 50
Debut authors Jeanne McCulloch, A. G. Lombardo, Anne Youngson, Maw Shein Win, and Laura Esther Wolfson.
The debut authors
featured in our third annual 5 Over 50 have all demonstrated the patience and resilience that is required of anyone who is devoted to writing as a lifelong art. What makes them special is not simply the quality of their first books and the depth of character they express in the following essays, but also that they’ve already achieved so much, including obtaining the wisdom and perspective that comes from living a bit of one’s life. Here, in their own words, we present five authors over the age of fifty whose debut books were published this year.
