Default Moultonborough Library (Virtual) Author Talk

Hey, Friends!
One of my most favoritest books ever is Ty Gagne's Where You'll Find Me. In it, the author examines risk and decision making using the tragedy of Kate Matrosova, a young woman who froze to death while traversing the Presidential Range.
His newest book, The Last Traverse—which I've just started—focuses on a similar tragedy occurring on the Franconia Ridge.
I really love his style and the way he tells the stories with equal parts warning, sympathy, and empathy—not an easy task when dealing with death in preventable circumstances.
On Thursday the 21st, the Moultonborough Library has a virtual author talk with Gagne at 6:30, for anyone who might be interested. I saw him give a talk a couple years back and he, again, did a wonderful job presenting with balance.

Cheers!
