Tom Montgomery Fate will offer a reading from selections of his essays at 12:10 p.m. on October 8 in the Edith Davis Eve Chapel. He will speak about trying to live a mindful life that balances an urban existence with a longing for the natural world. Montgomery Fate is the author of five books of nonfiction and a professor of English at the College of DuPage in the suburbs of Chicago. His most recent book, "Cabin Fever: A Suburban Father’s Search for the Wild", chronicles his attempt to live deliberately, as Henry David Thoreau might have, had he found himself in the midst of the 21st century. Montgomery Fate’s essays appear regularly in "The Chicago Tribune", "The Boston Globe", "Orion", "Iowa Review", and "Fourth Genre." He has also appeared on National Public Radio.

This event is sponsored by the Penn State Altoona Environmental Studies Program and is free and open to the public.
