Bloom ’75 Publishes Children’s Book

The New York Times reports that Amy Bloom ’75, the Kim-Frank University Writer in Residence, will publish a children’s book under the name Amy Beth Bloom titled Little Sweet Potato (Harper Collins) in August. According to The Times the story “follows the trials of a “lumpy, dumpy, bumpy” young tuber who is accidentally expelled from his garden patch and must find a new home. On his journey, he is castigated first by a bunch of xenophobic carrots, then by a menacing gang of vain eggplants.”
