A Little Backstory

About Joe Jurek

Joe Jurek is making his debut as a children's book author with "They Don't Make Books About Uncles." When his niece was born, he went to the bookstore to buy her an Uncle book. He found books about mommies and daddies, and brothers and sisters, and grandmas and grandpas, even books about aunties... but no books about Uncles. So he wrote this one! Joe is a graduate of the University of Illinois and of the Second City writing program. He is currently a copywriter in the Chicagoland area.
