“Whether you are someone who wants to be inspired by the stories of people put in extraordinary circumstances, or if you are curious about how we manage to get all those interviews that you see on the evening news or your Twitter feed, or if you are an aspiring journalist, this book is for you. I hope that you enjoy meeting these heroic people as much as I enjoyed writing about them.”

All proceeds from the admission charge of chai ($18) will support Table to Table (tabletotable.org), a community-based food rescue program that collects prepared and perishable food that would otherwise be wasted and delivers it to organizations serving the hungry in northern New Jersey. Food insecurity is a cause for which Jen has strongly advocated for many years. A generous donor, who wishes to remain anonymous, will make a matching gift in the amount of the proceeds to further support these essential programs.
