After attending Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, Heather Baror-Shapiro entered the magazine world, first working at Conde Nast Publications and then transitioning over to Hearst Magazines. A few years later, she joined Baror International as a literary agent having been drawn to the more literary aspects of book publishing.
