April 13th is Book Club!

This month’s book club discussion is about K2: The Savage Mountain.  Two of the authors,  Charles Houston and Robert Bates, are being inducted into the Hall of Mountaineering Excellence this Saturday,  so we’ve got a small exhibit up in the American Mountaineering Center that includes the famous Red Umbrella, which the ’54 Italian party retrieved from 22,000 feet. (Check out pg. 25 for a photo of the group hot springing it near Askole, umbrella in hand.)

Come to book club even if you haven’t read the book – it should be an interesting night!  It’ll be in the museum after hours so you’ll have to enter through the library.
