Prof. Claudine Michel, Director of the UCSB Center for Black Studies Research, will make a presentation and lead a discussion of the latest Santa Barbara Reads book, Mountains Beyond Mountains: The Quest of Dr. Paul Farmer, a Man Who Would Cure the World, written by Tracy Kidder. It is the provocative and moving true story of an infectious disease specialist and Harvard Med graduate (also a MacArthur genius award recipient) who has devoted his life to bringing health care to the poor in Haiti and other desperate areas. This absorbing book has been required reading on many college campuses. Dr. Farmer will give a free public lecture at the Arlington on Oct. 22 (call 893-3535 for details). Copies of the book in printed and audio formats are available from all branches of the Santa Barbara Public Library System.
