Jim Moss, host of the AAC’s book club writes in:
“We had an extremely interesting discussion at our September book club meeting where we discussed Mountains of the Mind by Macfarlane. The discussion touched life, death, religion, goals and how mountains affected and in some cases directed mankind.
I was personally amazed at the variation in expressions and emotions that mountains prompted just from our group. Great Discussion.”
Next month: October 13th: The Fall: A Novel by Simon Mawer Here is a 2003 review from The Independent
November 10th: Annapurna by Maurice Herzog. One of the true classics in mountaineering literature and what several great climbers have described as the book that generated their interest in climbing. We’ll also have some memorabilia/ Ephemera from the climb to review.
December 8th: Everest Alone at the Summit by Stephen Venables
Plan on coming even if you haven’t read the book, and bring a friend. We are having some really great discussions!
And don’t forget the Book Club Fight Club rules!
