Join CFE members for a West Suburban Book Club Event.  This is a social discussion on the book Sting-Ray Afternoons: A Memoir by Steve Rushin. 

"Funny, elegiac... a remarkably sunny coming-of-age story about growing up in a Midwest world." --- NPR

This is a story of the 1970s. Of a road trip in a wood-paneled station wagon, with the kids in the way-back, singing along to the Steve Miller Band. Of brothers waking up early on Saturday mornings for five consecutive hours of cartoons. Of growing up in a magical era populated by Bic pens, Mr. Clean and Scrubbing Bubbles, light sabers and those oh-so-coveted Schwinn Sting-Ray bikes. And of a father--one of 3M's greatest and last eight-track salesmen--traveling across the country on the brand-new Boeing 747, providing for his family but wanting nothing more than to get home.
