Here Comes Everybody

I wrote an essay! Seriously, if you know anyone who’s looking for a stimulating collection of pieces on Catholic Studies in American Higher Education, this might just be your ticket. The essays are based on talks given at St. Scholastica up in Duluth, where Father William Graham heads up the college’s Catholic Studies program. I’m pretty sure I was brought on as comic relief – John Allen had been there a week previous. Anyway, I was honored to be invited to contribute.


  1. Sounds great…I have added it to my “Wish List.”

    (It seems a bit pricey, but that pales in comparison to the $18,000,000 mansion that one of my dear ones has put on her wish list…)

    Oh, good gravy, Ellyn – I never dreamed anyone here would actually buy the thing. If you’re at all serious, the paperback version is considerably cheaper.

    Give it a couple of months, and that $18 million mansion will be down to $16.5.

    Always willing to help a fellow Catholic who is down on his luck. I will try to sell a couple copies. But the price is a bit high. I know some teachers.

    Is there really a paperback version? That would make it more attractive.

  4. Do you get any royalties from the book? Because *I* care enough about you and yours to pay the hardbound price.

    Just sayin’

  5. Matthew Lickona says

    Paperback is here. But I’m serious: I didn’t actually expect any Godsbody readers to buy the thing unless they were somehow involved in Catholic Higher Education. Not that I’m discouraging anyone, mind you. Father Graham was an exceedingly gracious host, and is attempting to do good things. I don’t receive any royalties – I was paid a fine fee up front – but based on my experience, I would say his work is worth supporting. Thanks for the love!
