MEET OUR NEW AUTHOR AMBASSADOR JAZZ JENNINGS

Jazz Jennings Hear what the BEING JAZZ audiobook team had to say about working with Jazz Jennings:

“I feel very honored to have worked on this audiobook. It’s amazing how self-aware Jazz is. I find her youth, and how much she’s achieved in such a short period of time, incredibly inspiring. This recording is infused with her energy and humor. It’s a wonderful story from a really extraordinary young woman.”—Kelly Gildea, audiobook producer

“It’s easy to see why Jazz’s fans include everyone from Oprah and Obama to a growing legion of kids and parents across the country. Jazz is everything a funny, smart, and charming daughter with loving parents should be, and at a time when intolerance is on sad display in our daily news she is an inspiration; we should all be so brave. I am so delighted to have worked with Jazz on her audiobook.”—Scott Sherratt, audiobook director

Being JazzListen to a clip of BEING JAZZ:

“[W]ell-written, informative, and accessible…[Jazz Jenning’s] story is an important addition to the slender but growing body of transgender literature and belongs in every library.”—Booklist, starred review
