New Book by Local Author Brought to you by Blank Slate Press

Never Hug a Nun by Kevin Killeen (Blank Slate Press publication)

“From falling for a girl with no-good-for-sports stick arms and beautiful penmanship, to jumping freight trains, smoking cigarettes, projectile vomiting, and accidentally robbing the local Ben Franklin, first grade at Mary Queen of Our Hearts parochial school changes everything for Patrick Cantwell. By the time Patrick graduates second grade, he’s practically a grown-up, complete with a broken heart, a police record and memories of the Beatles at Busch Stadium.”

Written with the keen sense of comic timing Killeen brings to his regular feature on KMOX, “Whole ‘nother Story,” and in a style reminiscent of Bill Bryson’s The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, Never Hug a Nun is a sweet, laugh-out-loud look at the innocence of childhood in the leafy Webster Groves suburb of 1960’s St. Louis.

The book launch is at Webster Groves Bookshop on Saturday, December 8, 2012.
