Brad Meltzer “Heroes for My Son”
May 20th, 2010
Every boy needs heroes as he grows up. Thing is, a lot of the men and women who might make terrific heroes may escape his attention, go undiscovered.
When bestselling thriller writer Brad Meltzer‘s first son was born, Brad started collecting a pantheon of heroes from which his son could someday choose.
The result — his book “Heroes for My Son.”
Many of the usual suspects are in here — Abraham Lincoln, the Wright Brothers, Mr. Rogers — but Brad Meltzer has gone out of his way to also choose heroes you may have never heard of, but who are heroic, nonetheless.
The stories are inspiring, to sons as well as dads and moms.
