Join Jennifer Hull, author of Shook: An Earthquake, a Legendary Mountain Guide, and Everest's Deadliest Day, and mountain guide Dave Hahn for a virtual event to benefit the Juniper Fund, Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation, and The Mountaineers.

One year after the notorious 2014 Khumbu Icefall avalanche claimed the lives of sixteen Sherpas, Dave Hahn, and his team spent weeks honing the techniques that would help keep them alive through the Icefall and the Death Zone on Mount Everest.

But none of this preparation could have prepared them for the earthquake that shook Everest and all of their lives on the morning of April 25, 2015, recounted in Jennifer Hull’s new book Shook: An Earthquake, a Legendary Mountain Guide, and Everest's Deadliest Day.

Join Jennifer, Dave Hahn, and The Mountaineers for a virtual discussion about the 2015 disaster, and the lessons learned after Everest's deadliest day.
