Fox Cities Book Festival 2018: October 8th - October 14th

Sean Jensen


After he was adopted from South Korea, Sean Jensen’s first American Dream was to...join the Professional Bowlers Association.

Seriously. He was in a league and everything. Despite an obvious passion for sports and even some modest athletic success, Sean realized a future in the NBA or Premier League was dubious. So Sean continued to play sports, he delivered sports (actually, he was a carrier for the Boston Globe), and he analyzed sports for his high school newspaper. After graduating from college, he interned at the Washington Post, then accepted a job to cover the Green Bay Packers for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. During his career, he’s won many awards, broken many big stories, covered many big games, appeared on many big networks and shows, and penned many profiles on high-profile athletes. After moving back to the Twin Cities, Sean hatched the concept for a book series that partnered with famous athletes to tell their inspirational childhood stories. So far, Sean has written four books in the Middle School Rules series with a fifth on the way. Sean will be speaking at schools during the festival.
