My Old Man and the Mountain: Book talk/multimedia presentation 360-354-4883 Event Categories:
What does a library system want for its 75th birthday? A good book, of course! And you’re invited to read along. To celebrate 75 years of sharing stories, Whatcom County Library System created Read & Share, a countywide book group.
Join us as we read Leif Whittaker’s gripping memoir, “My Old Man and the Mountain.” Learn what it’s like to grow up in the shadow of a legendary father—the first American to summit Mount Everest—and hear Leif share his story at special events this fall. At this book talk and multimedia presentation, Leif will share photographs and film clips from modern and historic expeditions to Mount Everest. He combines stories from his own adventures and his father’s legendary climb in 1963 to illustrate an inspiring and humorous talk about family, teamwork, risk and perseverance.
