Faculty Authors

With the publication of  Father Paschal's  latest book, we displayed books and significant magazine articles written by present and former Portsmouth Abbey School faculty. Included were works by monks and lay faculty; works in the fields of classics ( Fr. Gregory Floyd, Dr. Stevens and others), theology (Father Julian, Father Aelred and others), German, (Mr. Kennedy), history (Father Paschal, Mr. Garman, Mr. Taylor, Dr. Lally, and Dr. Zilian), math,  (Mr. Taliaferro) , and adult fiction (Ms. Hughes. and Ms. Ohlin) are represented as well as a few children's books. At this time there are 116 items in the collection.

October 28, 2015 marks the 25th Anniversary of the then "new" 1990 school LIBRARY addition to the Burden classroom building . It was constructed in order to move from the crowded first floor Manor House lobby where it had been located. The display contained the original invitation, photos of both "old' and "new'  libraries, construction plans and photos, school newspaper articles, and calculations for projections for additional shelving space and utilization.  For a few hours during the day students stopped by for refreshments and to view the displays.
