Prep Talk

Dr. John Mahoney Book Signing Party

Posted March 30th, 2012


On Wednesday, March 28, in the Scarpa Arts and Science Building over 30 guests celebrated the publication of Dr. John Mahoney’s most recent book Every Bottle Has a Story: A Wine Lover’s Short Story Collection.

The night began with the pouring of a sparkling wine while John personally signed and presented a copy of his book to all guests.  Fr. Stephen Curry, O.S.A., accompanied Dr. Mahoney in discussing four select wines that appeared within the stories of the book.

The intimate gathering enhanced the guests’ appreciation of wine and provided for a most entertaining and sensory experience.

All proceeds of the evening will assist in providing academic enrichment programs for students, faculty and staff development opportunities, as well as need and merit-based scholarships at St. Augustine Prep.

The book may be purchased at or by calling Ms. Krista Purcell in Institutional Advancement for an autographed copy at (856) 697-2600, Ext. 103.  Every Bottle Has a Story: A Wine Lover’s Short Story Collection retails for $9.99.
