Book About Alzheimer’s Struggles of Priest’s Father Translated Into Italian


Father James Sheehan, a priest of the archdiocese, made a book tour to Bari, Italy, last month to promote his recently translated book, “Il Padre Che Non Sapeva Il Mio Nome,” (“The Father Who Didn’t Know My Name”), in which he reflects on the battle his late father, James Coy Sheehan Sr., had with Alzheimer’s disease and its effect on his Bronx family.

Father Sheehan is chaplain at Hostos Community College and Bronx Community College of CUNY.

The self-published book was first published in English in 1999. Both the English and Italian versions are available for $14 each. Orders can be sent to Father James Sheehan, c/o Coy Publishing Company, P.O. Box 1605, Yonkers, NY 10704. Information: Father Sheehan, (718) 289-5954.
