Leahy and Batman
Stuck in Vermont 88
The Dark Knight premiered in Montpelier Saturday, days before its general release.
We have Vermont's own Dark Knight to thank for this rare event - US Senator Patrick Leahy who has a cameo in the film (watch clip).
Patrick Leahy grew up in Montpelier Vermont. Blind in one eye, he
spent much of his free time reading comics at the Kellogg-Hubbard
Years later, he is the library's favorite Superhero, donating proceeds
from his Batman film appearances and this recent screening of The Dark Knight which garnered a lot of media attention (NY Times, CNN, etc).
Leahy sits down with the library's Comics Clubs to talk about Batman, The Dark Knight, and why he loves reading.
