What happens when a group of 10-year-old boys try to have as much fun as they can get away with given the strict confines of a Catholic school in the fifties?
They form a club, of course.Three members make up the original “Beboli Boys”. Over the next four years the organization grows to over a hundred members, including originally forbidden Beboli Girls. In his new book, Jimmy Mahoney recalls in vivid detail how his group of Beboli Boys pulled altar boy and classroom pranks and devised money-making schemes that somehow were always more funny than harmful. Mahoney’s writing reminds us of a time when children had both more freedom and responsibility and his stories celebrate the unabashed, humorous cleverness of youth.
The Secrets of Little Saints will also be available in other ebook formats in late summer.
Jimmy was a featured author at The Virginia Festival of the Book in March. See video clips on our news page.
