Interview with Jen Calonita

| E:91

On today's episode, Adam interviews Jen Calonita in Atlanta during the American Library Association Midwinter meetings. Jen has gone from being an editor at a teen entertainment magazine where she interviewed celebrities backstage to creating her own stories from her life experiences. Now, she's building magical worlds of her own through the Fairy Tale Reform School series. Adam and Jen chat about how she came to be an author and how Disney has been the through line of her career that led to the whimsical she's not writing.
