Oct. 4: Book Discussion: 1 Book 1 Valley!

Date: 10/04/18 10:30 am

The Library's Book Group meets on the FIRST Thursday of each month at 10:30 a.m. at the library from October to June with a hiatus during the busy summer months from July-Sept.

Yes, please note that we will meet on the FIRST THURSDAY OF EACH MONTH FROM NOW ON!

 

On Oct. 4th, we will discuss this year's One Book One Valley pick: "Where You Will Find Me- Risk, Decisions, and the Last Climb of Kate Matrosova" by Ty Gagne.

 

On Feb. 15, 2015, Kate Matrosova, an avid mountaineer, set off before sunrise for a traverse of the Northern Presidential Range in New Hampshire's White Mountains. Late the following day, rescuers carried her frozen body out of the mountains amid some of the worst weather ever recorded on these deceptively rugged slopes.

 

What went wrong?

Where You'll Find Me offers possible answers to that question, demonstrating why Matrosova's story--what we know and what we will never know--represents such an intriguing and informative case study in risk analysis and decision-making.

 

The group reads mostly fiction but a few times a year we discuss a nonfiction book.

 

This is an open book discussion group. Everyone is welcome, whether or not you are a library member!
