Jenna

Because of her dyslexia, Jenna was a late bloomer in the wild and wonderful world of books. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini was the first book she read and fell in love with. Since then, reading and writing have become her life's work. Whether she's bookselling, running her own business, speaking on her podcast, or writing works of fiction and non-fiction, her passion lies in connecting with people through curiosity, conversation, and storytelling.
