Michael Patton Gets Caught Reading
Today we bring you our ninth installment of Get Caught Reading. It's also our first to take place off campus. Carmichael Library caught up with UM professor of philosophy Michael Patton at Eclipse Coffee and Books on Montevallo's Main Street.
It seems appropriate to the start of Banned Books Week on Saturday that Dr. Patton is reading Kingdom of Fear, by the late gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson. The subtitle of the book is "Loathsome Secrets of a Star-Crossed Child in the Final Days of the American Century." Said Patton of his reading choice, "It's political insight and humor that makes me laugh out loud."
Since we started taking these pictures last April, we've asked for your nominations for the UM community member you'd most like to see here. Whether it's your favorite prof, your best friend, or a student organization, we hope you'll keep sending us your ideas.
