Steph Davis with Learning to Fly
Historic LoDo: Steph Davis, who was a superstar in the climbing community until a controversial event left her without a partner, a career, a source of income, or a purpose. This world-renowned climber, now a skydiver and BASE jumper as well, writes a blog on veganism, animal rights, and simple living. Davis will discuss and sign her new book Learning to Fly: An Uncommon Memoir of Human Flight, Unexpected Love, and One Amazing Dog (Touchstone), the story of her search for a new identity. In the company of only her beloved dog, Fletch, Davis discovers skydiving and other challenges. This is her fascinating account of transformation, from her early tentative skydives, to zipping into her first wingsuit and base jumping, to surviving devastating accidents against the background of breathtaking cliffs, to soaring beyond her own limits, and discovering the joy of letting go.
