ItÂs nice to know that most of the kids who went through the Catholic School system did so without the need of a lawyer. Proof that most of them may have even enjoyed the experience keeps popping up in the form of books and plays.
A new star currently peeping over the horizon comes in the form of a newly released book by Sophia Zufa, also a product of the parochial school system and the men (and women) in black. Her book, ÂWhy God Has Gray HairÂ is based on her experiences in a Catholic school in the 1930Âs, the years of the Depression.
Although times were hard, she looks back fondly on those years, recalling family and friends and how things really were. ÂI started jotting down some of the things we did as kidsÂ she says Âafter getting together with a few of my old classmates.Â She says the title of the book came from what her parents used to tell her and her brothers when they would get into trouble. Â ÂYou would give the good Lord Himself gray hairÂ they would tell us.Â
Now 80 and a grandmother of three, this is the second book for Zufa, who also has translated two books for publication in English and recently completed a novel. She also writes a monthly humor column for a regional newspaper, The Senior Connection.
Just released in paperback by Echelon Press, Why God Has Gray Hair is a lively collection of anecdotes spanning her eight years in Saints Cyril and Methodius school in Joliet, Illinois. To find out more about the author and her books, visit her website at http://hometown.aol.com/toots10622.
