The stuff of Legends

For those of you who will be in town…

Jon Krakauer will be reading from his new book on July 30th, at Hood River Valley High School’s Bowe Theatre. The throwdown starts at 7 pm. This will also be the only stop on his multi-planetary book-hypin’ safari where he will show his slideshow, “Playing for More than You Can Afford to Lose: Ruminations on Mountains and Risk.” It has pictures from “Into the Wild”, Everest ’96, and other climbs Krakauer has survived.

Cost is a measly eight bucks in advance. Cost is a measly ten dollars for all you extreme procrastinators at the door. Proceeds all go to the “Krakauer Hardcore Life Maintenence Fund” and the Hood River Library after going through a dizzying array of money-laundering schemes and junk bonds.

I’ll be there. You will be, too.
