Menlo Professor to Discuss “I Sang in My Chains”

Dr. Marilyn Thomas, a Menlo College English professor and published author, will discuss her recent autobiographical work, “I Sang In My Chains,” from noon-1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 10 at Brawner Hall, Room 407 (The Pit), Menlo College, 1000 El Camino Real, Atherton, CA.

“I Sang In My Chains” recounts Thomas' life journey toward holiness as she progresses from a 14-year-old at a convent to a married woman to her present life. Along the way, she gathers deeper insights into what is meant by the religious vows of “poverty,” “celibacy” and “obedience”.

The discussion is part of Menlo College's ongoing Scholars' Colloquia, which provides Menlo faculty, librarians, administrators and professional staff the opportunity to address topics of research and professional engagement.

The aim is to foster a climate of academic inquiry throughout the campus and give scholars a chance to share the results of current research with the Menlo community.
