Edge of the Map Book Talk

Edge of the Map Book Talk

Join us as author Johanna Garton talks about the life of trailblazing alpinist Christine Boskoff, her partnership with climber Charlie Fowler and the legacies she left behind. Discussion will include the remarkable search & rescue efforts following her 2006 disappearance and reflections on the spiritual, environmental and ethical challenges we face while living mountain lives.

Edge of the Map encapsulates a dramatic and inspiring adventure story based on the life of trailblazing mountaineer Christine Boskoff and her partner Charlie Fowler. Taking place in locations from the Midwest to the South to the Rockies to the Pacific Northwest, Nepal, Pakistan and Tibet, readers follow Chris’s rise in the sport as she climbs alongside a cast of legendary alpinists and Sherpas. Carving her own path, Chris’s journey through a life in the mountains is one full of both elation and hardship, but ultimately triumph.

The evening will kick off with a cocktail hour and book sales, followed by an entertaining presentation and panel discussion, raffle with proceeds benefiting US Nepal Climbing Association, and a book signing.

Tickets are $5
