Sara hosted a webseries called Gettin’ Wet, where she interviewed guests like Margaret Cho, Neil Gaiman, and James Urbaniak! Here’s one of the most popular episodes, released in 2009, featuring Donald Glover, you’ll love it!
Here’s the part of the column where I show you some choice Tweets made by Sara! Let’s do it:
Alright, before we part for another week, we’ll watch this well-made animated short film that illustrated a clip from her last book, Agorafabulous! It’s funny and informational and thoughtful, everything we’ve come to know Sara to be over these last few paragraphs, right?
