“The Ladies of Loretto”, unlike her previous memoirs, is the story Viga Boland always dreamed of writing one day. This memoir is a nostalgic and humorous, tongue-in-cheek look at what it was like to attend a Catholic High School during the years of 1960 – 1965, when the nuns slammed a yardstick ruler on your desk if you were dozing off during Latin and made you kneel on the marble floors while they checked if your uniform wasn’t getting too short. It was the era of teased hair, American Bandstand, the “Twist”. There were no cell-phones, iPads, texting and students focused on grades instead of Pokemons. And when it came to sex-ed, well that just didn’t exist.
