This Sunday is Father’s Day, which brings to mind one of Eight Forty-Eight’s favorite fathers, Tom Montgomery Fate. Fate is a writer and regular contributor to the show. He turns time spent in the woods – and the suburbs – into reflections on life, parenthood, birth and death. Eight Forty-Eight invited Fate in to share his discoveries.
Tom Montgomery Fate's new memoir is Cabin Fever: A Suburban Father’s Search for the Wild. You can catch him at his reading Wednesday, June 15, at the Oak Park Public Library.
