Join world-class alpinist, journalist and author, Pete Takeda, on Wednesday, February 4, at 7:00 p.m., in the Museum, as he discusses the terrifying legacy of the Cold War’s most daring CIA operation from his award-winning book, An Eye at the Top of the World. Pete’s book is a true story involving Cold War intrigue in the remotest part of the Himalayas and a deadly poison that could potentially be unleashed upon millions of people. According to Takeda, the book is “a blend of Cold War history, environmental mystery and outdoor adventure, unfolding with a real-life Eiger Sanction-esque back-story.” Read more in the Daily Camera here: http://www.dailycamera.com/bdc/recreation_columnists/article/0,1713,BDC_2484_4959795,00.html
