On Saturday, September 17, 2022, from 10 to 11am, Rev. Edward A. Malloy, C.S.C., will sign copies of his book Monk’s Notre Dame, at the Hammes Notre Dame Bookstore. Anyone who has studied, taught, or worked at the University of Notre Dame, and those otherwise interested in the university, will find Monk’s Notre Dame delightful.
This wonderful collection of humorous, poignant, and revealing stories and anecdotes offers special insight into the university that Father Malloy has served so faithfully. Monk’s Notre Dame has a story to tell about nearly every aspect of life at Notre Dame. Father Malloy intersperses fresh insight on traditional campus events, such as new students moving into the residence halls and the annual bookstore basketball tournament, with lesser-known stories, such as the mysterious disappearance and dramatic reappearance of a statue of Father Edward Sorin at the helm of a motorboat on St. Mary’s Lake.
Father Malloy also presents charming vignettes about the people who have made Notre Dame the place it is. He offers a personal tribute to the legendary Reverend Theodore M. Hesburgh and includes warm and witty stories about other C.S.C. priests and brothers, such as Charles Doremus (“Father Duck”) and Brother Cosmas Guttly, who lived to be ninety-nine. Memorable anecdotes about professors, students, and “behind the scenes” workers are also captured in this book.
Edward A. “Monk” Malloy, C.S.C., served from 1987 to 2005 as the sixteenth president of the University of Notre Dame, where he is currently professor of theology. He serves on the board of directors of a number of universities and national organizations and is the recipient of twenty-five honorary degrees. Father Malloy is the author of eleven books, including his three-volume memoir Monk’s Tale: The Pilgrimage Begins, 1941–1975; Monk’s Tale: Way Stations on the Journey; and Monk’s Tale: The Presidential Years, 1987–2005 (University of Notre Dame Press, 2009, 2011, and 2016).
The book signing is free and open to the public. Father Malloy will be available to sign books at the Hammes Bookstore on:
- Saturday, Sept. 17 from 10 – 11 am
- Saturday, Nov. 19 from 11:30 am – 12:30 pm
