Tom Montgomery Fate, author and College of DuPage professor emeritus, will host a virtual discussion on his travel memoir, The Long Way Home: Detours and Discoveries, Wednesday, July 20 at 7 p.m.
In a travel memoir that ventures from his small-town upbringing to vastly different cultures around the globe, College of DuPage Professor Emeritus Tom Montgomery Fate comes to define “home” not as a physical location, but as a way of belonging. “Migrating birds have an internal compass that allows them to home their way back to their nesting place each spring,” he writes. “For birds, home is both verb and noun—both journey and destination.” Fate will discuss translating life into memoir in this delightfully insightful discussion.
