Book Launch with Michael W. Higgins

September 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Jesuit Disruptor: A Personal Portrait of Pope Francis

New Date! September 11, 7-9pm!

Acclaimed scholar, journalist, documentarian and jovial raconteur, Michael W. Higgins launches his latest book, The Jesuit Disruptor, written from his longstanding, personal experience of the inner workings (and malfunctions) of the Catholic Church.

Pope Francis is also a credible moral voice on issues of immigration, economic inequity, the devastating consequences of political populism, and the accelerating threats to the environment, in spite of the fact that he faces deep infrastructure and governance scandals in his organization.

In his determination to reform the Vatican and ensure the Catholic faith evolves in a way that is relevant to the twenty-first century, Francis is very much carrying on the tradition of the Jesuits, an order known for their work in education, humanitarian missions, and social justice. A deep understanding of the Jesuit order informs Michael W. Higgins’s approach in this novel reading of a papacy unlike any other.

Light refreshments served.

Books available for purchase and signing by the author.
