Overview

Patrick Thomas Kiernan was born in Newark, New Jersey, in 1962, and attended St. Peter's Grammar School in Belleville, New Jersey. Mr. Kiernan recounts both the humorous and the unspeakable in this "old school" memoir. Mr. Kiernan is currently an administrator in Florida and continues to be haunted by his days at St. Peter's thirty-five years later. "Surviving St. Peter is more than a reflection or a look back at my early grade school years with some laughter or disdain. For me it is a coming out of sorts. Reliving these events, page after page, has allowed me to reflect on issues I knew existed and thought about often, but never had the courage to share." Mr. Kiernan received his BA in psychology from Bloomfield College and his MA from Kean University in New Jersey.

    Funny and Incredibly Sad

    Mr. Kiernan has captured Catholic School in the 60's perfectly. It is also an account of courage and persistence despite the things that occured to him during his time in St. Peters. It made me laugh, cry, sypathize, and reflect.
