Join AARP Tampa Bay volunteers and members as we discuss the book Mr. Pizza by J.F. Pandolfi

SYNOPSIS:  Just about everyone makes at least one off-the-wall decision at some  point. Usually it’s no big deal. But if it ends up changing people’s  lives. . .

It’s 1973, and Tony decides he needs a carefree year  off after college—with pay. To the shock of his tight-knit family and  closest friends, he postpones law school and talks his way into a job  teaching sixth grade at a Catholic school in Staten Island, N. Y.   Say  hi to the Moby Dick of miscalculations. His pathetic effort is making  him look bad, especially compared to the other sixth-grade instructor,  Sister Theresa, an energetic young nun whose sunny disposition could  have turned Attila the Hun into a daisy-picking philanthropist.  To  make matters worse, his irreverent sense of humor antagonizes the  powers-that-be: the alpha-male president of the school board, and the  pastor who’s more interested in single malt scotch than saving souls.
