Altadena writer Patricia Bunin loves to tell stories. Her Senior Moments column appears weekly in the Los Angeles Daily News, Orange County Register, and other papers of the Southern California Newspaper Group. Her work has been honored by the Los Angeles Press Club, The National Society of Columnists and she is a recent recipient of The Southern California Journalism Award for Commentary.
She has edited a poetry magazine under a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts, and is the author of the books, Password: SeniorMoment, and Do You Think We Could Have Made It?: and Other Love Poems for the Separated and Divorced.
Patricia writes about “life moments”: the smaller and larger moments that define our lives. Her openness to sharing her own stories has resonated and endeared her to readers of all ages.
A breast cancer survivor, excerpts from her own journal were published in the Pasadena Star-News and converted into a brochure for patients at The USC/Norris Cancer Center in Los Angeles. She is the creator of breastbuddy.net, a free support website for women.
