Presentation & Booksigning with Amanda Padoan: Buried in the Sky
|Historic LoDo: Journalist Amanda Padoan will present a slideshow and sign her new book Buried In the Sky: The Extraordinary Story of the Sherpa Climbers on K2’s Deadliest Day (W.W. Norton). When Edmund Hillary first conquered Mt. Everest, Sherpa Tenzing Norgay was at his side. Indeed, for as long as Westerners have been climbing the Himalaya, Sherpas have been the unsung heroes in the background. In August 2008, when eleven climbers lost their lives on K2, the world’s most dangerous peak, two Sherpas survived. They had emerged from poverty and political turmoil to become two of the most skillful mountaineers on earth. Based on unprecedented access and interviews, Buried in the Sky reveals their astonishing story for the first time. Eric Meyer and Chhiring Dorje, both survivors of the 2008 K2 climb, will join Amanda for this event.
