Book Club: April 13th: K2: The Savage Mountain

Posted on: March 23rd, 2010 by AAC Library

Last month the book club read Steve House’s book, Beyond the Mountain.  Steve generously offered to spend some time on the phone and ended up talking with book club members for over an hour.   There was an abundance of beer and some homemade but gourmet brownies.   Friendliness and good feelings abounded  – so much so that the name Book Club Fight Club was questioned.  A search for a new name is now in progress.

The April 13th book club selection, K2: The Savage Mountain, coincides with the Mountaineering Museum’s first gala event – the Hall of Mountaineering Excellence – which takes place on April 10th.

The authors of the book, Charles Houston and Robert Bates, will be honored at the Gala, along with Yvon Chouinard and Robert Craig.  Ed Viesturs will be the guest speaker.  So you can see that a reading or re-reading of this classic of mountaineering is an urgent matter now that the end of March is upon us.  Sign up for the book club’s google group and join in the conversation!  Come to Book Club on April 13th, and don’t forget to buy your tickets for the April 1oth event!
