Update on "The Collar"

I have posted before about the new book, The Collar, which is about several men in the seminary. Well, I received this message from the author yesterday:

Hi everyone:

The Collar book tour continued this past weekend with an excellent event in Colorado hosted by one of the five main characters in the book, Father Don Malin.

Today's Washington D.C reading at the C.I.C. (1501 K Street, NW - 202-783-2062) has been postponed by the heavy rains that have deluged the capitol and will be rescheduled for mid-July. I will keep you posted as to the new date.

As always, please keep me posted with any comments you may have about the book especially thoughts about getting the word out there. If you have enjoyed The Collar and think that it's a book others should read --please tell people about it and the website!

Thanks so much!


I'm very thankful for that email. I would like to point out that has The Collar for $25.95.

My brief review here.

I had hoped for better. It covers a year in the life of about 6 seminarians who are all over 30. They have had other careers and lives but have been drawn to the priesthood.

Most of the guys' stories were just not interesting to me. I liked Dean, but his performance and the results were annoying.

The education they received was too liberal. The lack of discipline in life and study was frustrating. I wouldn't want to go to this seminary.
