About Your Teacher
Felice Cohen, known nationally and internationally as the woman who lived in one of the world’s smallest apartments, is the award-winning author of “Half In: A Coming-of-Age Memoir of Forbidden Love,” “90 Lessons for Living Large in 90 Square Feet (…or More)” and “What Papa Told Me.”
“Half In” won the 2022 “Outstanding LGBT Book of the Year Award” (fiction and non-fiction) from the Independent Author Network. “90 Lessons,” the recipient of numerous self-help book awards, was inspired by the YouTube video of Felice's 90-square-foot New York City studio that went viral with over 25 million views. Felice has been featured on Good Morning America, NBC, CBS, NPR, Time, Globe & Mail, New York Daily News, the Daily Mail and more. What enabled Felice to “live large” in that tiny studio is that she has been a professional organizer for over 25 years.
As the grandchild of two Holocaust survivors, Felice's book, “What Papa Told Me,” a memoir about her grandfather’s life before, during and after the war, was endorsed by Elie Wiesel and Yad Vashem: The World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem, is taught in schools across the country, has been translated into Polish, and has sold over 35,000 copies around the world. Felice splits her time between New York City and Cape Cod.
