She has spent the past ten years working on ‘Mr. B’, a biography of George Balanchine that was published this November. We talk to Jennifer about the research process, her most fascinating finds and what her final takeaways are from spending a decade getting to know the life of George Balanchine.  Get your copy of ‘Mr. B’: https://amzn.to/3VRCKEH.
