Time Capsule: 1965

Saint Fidgeta at Forty
Summer, 1965 - She’s tiny, she’s jittery and she’s what made Bellairs the “famous author.” Forty years ago this summer Saint Fidgeta found herself in print when the Catholic publication The Critic published the humorous story of this miraculous patroness that changed the lives of parishioners everywhere.

"St. Fidgeta: Her Life and Amazing Times" changed its twenty-seven year old creator, too: Bellairs would eventually find creating eerily familiar worlds more engaging than teaching college English. The following year, the original article would be compiled with other silly bits of Catholic humor into the book, Saint Fidgeta and Other Parodies.
