Late bloomer

I just read that Betty Rosenberg Perlov’s book, Rifka Takes a Bow, won the Sydney Taylor award in the category of young readers.

I haven’t read the book yet but I’m so intrigued. The author is 96 years old. Her manuscript was rejected by publishers 20 years ago and now, here it is, taking a bow as a major actor on the big stage.

For everyone who has a dream and keeps pursuing it, this just shows that it’s never to late to fulfill a dream.
