Message from Missy Moxley:

The Grace Book Club has decided on the next novel! We have decided to read, The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid  by Bill Bryson.   We decided to read through Chapter 8 “School Days” in our book for next week!


The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid ( 2006)
by 
Bill Bryson.
Bill Bryson was born in the middle of the American century—1951—in the middle of the United States—Des Moines, Iowa—in the middle of the largest generation in American history—the baby boomers. As one of the best and funniest writers alive, he is perfectly positioned to mine his memories of a totally all-American childhood for 24-carat memoir gold. Like millions of his generational peers, Bill Bryson grew up with a rich fantasy life as a superhero. In his case, he ran around his house and neighborhood with an old football jersey with a thunderbolt on it and a towel about his neck that served as his cape, leaping tall buildings in a single bound and vanquishing awful evildoers (and morons)—in his head—as "The Thunderbolt Kid."

Using this persona as a springboard, Bill Bryson re-creates the life of his family and his native city in the 1950s in all its transcendent normality—a life at once completely familiar to us all and as far away and unreachable as another galaxy. It was, he reminds us, a happy time, when automobiles and televisions and appliances (not to mention nuclear weapons). He brings us into the life of his loving but eccentric family, including affectionate portraits of his father, a gifted sportswriter and of his mother, whose job as the home furnishing editor.
