Overview


In April 2009 alumni and friends of Catholic High School for Boys will gather to toast and roast a favorite of the school’s legendary faculty, Michael Moran, the author of Proudly We Speak Your Name. Only a stoic could complete a reading without a teary-eyed moment or two and many belly laughs. Faculty idiosyncrasies are recalled in this memoir, as are student antics. If it can happen within the walls of an all-boys high school, the author has probably seen it in his forty-one years of teaching. And he has probably reported on it in this book, which was written during his first year of “retirement.” While the spirit is often light, Moran’s book ends with a stirring tribute to the man who, though departed, still epitomizes the spirit of the place, the man whose name is now given to the school’s street, Father George Tribou. Readers will leave Moran’s account glad for the experience of following in his (remembered) footsteps.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
During his 41 years at the Little Rock Catholic High School for Boys, Michael Moran has taught English to 7,000 young men, at least a few of whom were initially reluctant to immerse themselves in the wonders of literary classics. This autobiography, written in the first year of his retirement, recaps the surprisingly eventful career of a legendary teacher and personal mentor.
From the Publisher

“I learned more about English literature at Catholic High than in all my classes at Princeton.” —Actual comment by a 2003 graduate of LRCH who requests that his name be withheld until his sheepskin is awarded by that school in Princeton, New Jersey
