The New Catholic Book Club


This March the Catholic Book Club will take on a new direction as Kevin Spinale, S.J., leads a discussion of the book, The Patriarch: The Remarkable Life and Turbulent Times of Joseph P. Kennedy. On Friday March 1 Kevin, a Jesuit scholastic who teaches English at Boston College, will post a short summary of the book with a series of questions for discussion. Then on March 22 we will hold an online conversation.
