Meet Author Tom Montgomery Fate

Finding a way to reconnect with nature
                   New book by Glen Ellyn author                  Tom Montgomery Fate

Join the DuPage Writers Group as we present author Tom Montgomery Fate. He will present pieces of his book Cabin Fever and talk about the intersection of humans with nature and how we can find ways to connect more with it. This book will cause you to search out questions of how we live and why understanding nature will allow us to seek a closer relationship with it, and in doing so, seek a deeper connection to ourselves and each other.

This is a don’t miss opportunity!

Here he is speaking about the book on WTTW.
Please see this post on the Wheaton Trib Local page for more details. No RSVP required!
