From Vermont to South Korea: Telling Stories in Sports

Monday, March 5, 2018
12:20pm – 1:35pm

Storrs Campus
Dodd Center, Konover Auditorium

This free event will feature New York Times sports writer Karen Crouse, who is now covering the Winter Olympics in South Korea. Crouse has covered several Olympics as well as the NFL, Major League Baseball and the PGA tour. She just published her first book, Norwich (Simon and Schuster), about a small town in Vermont that has produced a surprising number of Olympians and seems to have discovered how to raise healthy and successful athletes by maintaining the balance between fun and competition in this age of helicopter parenting. Afterwards she will sign books, which will be for sale.

This event is sponsored by the Department of Journalism.
