CONFESSIONS OF A SIXTIES PRIEST

Dr. Jim O’Brien, coordinator for Reminiscence Writing at the PLATO program in Wisconsin, has published a second volume to his memoirs entitled Confessions of a Sixties Priest: But Probably Not What You’re Thinking. Picking up from the point at which Volume I ends on the seminary steps, the story follows Father O’Brien from his ordination in 1961 through the Sixties and his checkered career as parish priest, newspaper editor, graduate student, television intern, and motherhouse chaplain. Known locally for his humorous writings, O’Brien teaches reminiscence writing and film courses for senior learners at UW-Madison, plays in a jazz band, and continues to crank out his remembrances as long as he has them. Confessions of a Sixties Priest, published at $24.95 by IUniverse, may be sampled at their web site,
