[VIDEO] Founder of Red Hen Press and author of new book "The Goldilocks Zone"

Kate Gale is the founding editor of LA-based publisher Red Hen Press, which has published the works of authors like Ron Carlson, Percival Everett and Douglas Kearney. 

In this interview Gale talks about why her early proximity to Hollywood pushed her to start Red Hen Press, and then discusses her new book The Goldilocks Zone, which explores the scientific idea of a Goldilocks Zone- a region around a star that is suitable for planetary life- and how it relates to the artistic life.
