Patty Appelbaum’s Reflections on Hidden Scholars

Hi all you Hidden Scholars,

Patty has been so kind as to write up her reflections on the founding of Hidden Scholars, which she undertook back in 2012.

As I’m sure you are aware, Patty’s latest book is on St. Francis of America: How a Thirteenth-Century Friar Became America’s Most Popular Saint (2015). There are links to the book and author pages below.


If you are unable to read the pdf, just let me know and I’ll send you a copy in some other format.

Here are the book and author links:

Thanks for all you’ve done and continue to do, Patty!
