Brad Meltzer‘s father died a couple of weeks ago.

My first memory of my father is him coming home from work when I was little. He’d pick me up and put me on the top of the refrigerator, my little feet dangling over the freezer door.

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.

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.
