Northshire Bookstore – Paul Warren – University Follies: Jewish Roots in a Jesuit University

July 19 @ 6:00pm-7:00pm


The author will discuss his memoir of his tenure as a dean at a Jesuit university in San Francisco after his Greenwich Village childhood. University Follies is a tale of day-to-day human strivings, frailties, humor and pain in a human institution in a vibrant city.

Follies is a tale of sea change; A Boston dean’s move from East coast to West coast; from Greenwich Village childhood in an American Labor Party, theatrical, professional and religious skeptical family, to culmination of a career as Management in a Jesuit university.

“A memoir that contains more than hindsight writing. Humor also abounds.” – California Bookwatch

“Readers interested in accounts of educational labor/management battles, dueling principles, the Jesuit ambience of the university Warren worked for, and the follies which emerged from the intersection of student, teacher and management concerns will find University Follies more than entertaining while it educates on challenges particular to university leadership. Highly recommend for memoir, education and Jewish and Jesuit readers and libraries simply seeking a lively story of ironic interactions and wry humor. University Follies is well worth its acquisition and recommendation to book clubs and readers.” – Midwest Book Review
