Thursday Twitter Takeover: Jill Kolongowski

Each Thursday, an accomplished published author takes over the YEM Twitter account. Each week, the YA author will answer questions, tell stories, and give advice on our social media. This week, young adult author Jill Kolongowski will be taking over our Twitter account.


Harry Potter fans are sure to love this week’s takeover! Jill Kolongowski will be discussing her book “Life Lessons Harry Potter Taught Me.” It is a collection of essays that dives deep into the Harry Potter universe and applies the Hogwarts principles to real life situations. According to Kolongowski, she will be discussing, “who I think is the worst character (hint: it’s a Weasley), or who I think is the most underrated character (hint: it’s not Harry, Hermione, or Ron), or for advice about writing (I can’t guarantee help but I can guarantee commiseration or quotes from people smarter than I am). I’ll be talking about a lot of firsts, too.” This will be a Twitter Takeover that fans won’t want to miss!
