Breast cancer survivor, author discusses her new book

Geralyn Lucas, author of Why I Wore Lipstick to My Mastectomy, will discuss her sequel, Then Came Life, Wednesday, Feb. 3, at 10 a.m., at Vince, 161 Greenwich Avenue.

Then Came Life is a charming, quirky, delightful yet poignant story of surviving life, a collection of coming-of-(middle)-age stories of trying to be a role model for her daughter while being dissatisfied with her own looks, and what happens when her adoring son is more intent on romancing her than her husband is (right down to dueling Valentine’s Day cards). Geralyn harnesses her fighting spirit and leaves behind the trauma of cancer to battle all the rest that life has to throw at her. Then Came Life is not a cancer recovery story: it is about rediscovering the resilience, courage, and optimism it takes to reinvent yourself at every age.

All tickets will include a copy of the book and signing will be available after the program. For more information, visit
