High School Dance

Posted on Monday, June 13, 2016 | No Comments

The sequel to Starbuck O'Dwyer's award-winning memoir about his elementary school years, High School Dance is a collection of meaningful, memorable and hilarious stories about the agony and ecstasy of junior and senior high school. Few times in life are more memorable than these years. Humiliation, heartbreak and failure are abundant, and that's on a good day. No matter who you are, coming of age is exciting, confusing and sometimes downright dangerous, and High School Dance will leave you laughing aloud and remembering what it's like to be young, wild and free. From the author: "This book is the culmination of a project that began after my son arrived in the world. Like most first-time fathers, I felt a profound sense of responsibility and became determined to pass along every lesson I believed was important. To do so, I listed the events of my childhood that taught me the most, forcing me to revisit many harrowing experiences such as batting zero in little league baseball, my chronic addiction to a blanket, my disastrously unsuccessful try-out for the role of Winthrop in The Music Man, and the time I mooned the entire sixth grade. I wanted my son to know whatever hardship he might face; his father had already been there, learned something of value and survived. Over time, the list evolved into two books: one about my grade school years, How to Raise a Good Kid, and one about my junior and senior high school years, High School Dance. Enjoy!
