Local Author launches third “Jensen Family Story”


The book, Bag Babies Save Civilization, follows the first foray into politics by two of the Jensen children.  With the help of their mother, an english teacher and a very wealthy entrepreneur, they present Congress with a way to push human beings off the path to self-destruction that we seem to be headed down.  It will come as no surprise to those who know the author that the idea of being nice plays a central role.


Whitehouse is the author of two other books in the Jensen Family series, as well as two non-fiction books, one about composting, and the other about changing existing systems in order to combat climate change.

My connection with books is life long: avid reader for the past 65 or so years, bookbinder, maker  and restorer from 1974 until about 2000, bookseller from 1994 to 2016 and author from 2004 until the future.​
