Book signing event: Lightning Bugs and The Harvest - May 7, 2022


The Thornton Historical Society is pleased to announce a book signing by author Michael Hofer entitled “Lightning Bugs and The Harvest: A look back at life in the baby boomers beginning years.” Hofer, who grew up in Thornton, based this book on his experiences there.

This was “A time like none before, prosperity, healing, fear, excitement, new technology, and social frontiers moving. Wars, protests, and rock and roll and more children running around than ever. Discovering and taking on the world, in a small town in the Midwest in the late 1960s while in the last year of childhood.”


Everyone is welcome to come and meet the author on May 7, 2022 from 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM at the Thornton Historical Museum. Mike would be happy to reminisce and sign your book. Books are available from Amazon.com in Kindle, Paperback and Hardcover. There will be a limited number for purchase that day from the author. Proceeds from the sale of Kindle and paperback copies to benefit the Thornton Historical Society.


The museum is located at 114 N. Hunter Street in Thornton. Everyone is welcome.
