Misadventures of a 1970s Childhood: A Humorous Memoir

| February 21, 2018


Grow up in the 70s?

Remember the David Cassidy hair, the bright clothes, the 70s music?

These readers surely did after reading “Misadventures of a 1970s Childhood:”

“Happy, sad. Laugh, cry. You’ll remember stories from your own childhood as you read about the author’s family.” – Shari W. Temoke

“Huffy bikes with banana seats, Evel Knievel, staying out until the street lights came on, drive-in movies, it’s all in here!” – Tony L

“If you’re looking for 60’s and 70’s nostalgia, or just want to read about how great it was to grow up in that era, I highly recommend this book.” – L. James

“Misadventures of a 1970s Childhood” offers a romp back in time to the fond childhood memories that millions of baby boomers experienced more than 40 years ago.

It includes stories about:

•Bike jumps that nearly killed us
•Vengeance on the sledding slopes
•6th grade puppy love
•The old wooden stereo console every family had in the dining room
•The David Cassidy shag haircut
•The dog that ran away
•The photo box in the old box in mom and dad’s hall closet
•The baby sister left behind at the drive-in theater
•A regrettable incident in which a toilet was clogged with an apple core
•And other tales that could only happen in the 70s.

I hope, as you read this delightful collection of stories, that you have as much fun reliving your 70s childhood as I did writing about my own.
