Jeff Kinney Visits The Yarn
Colby: Interviewing someone like Jeff Kinney is a little nerve-racking. The guy has sold more than 250,000,000 million books. That is a lot! I have seen so many kids develop of love of reading within the pages of Jeff’s books, so all I wanted to do with my 20 minute conversation is thank him. Thanking someone for 20 minutes probably wouldn’t make for a very entertaining podcast, so I decided to ask Jeff some questions. Talking to him about quarantine, 16 hour work days, his fifth grade teacher brought me tremendous joy.
I hope you enjoy listening to our conversation.
