Wednesday, January 6, 2021 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Join us for a presentation from Ty Gagne on his latest book 'The Last Traverse: Tragedy and Resilience in the Winter Whites' - an epic account of two hikers who get caught in a winter storm atop New Hampshire's Franconia Ridge and the bravery and selflessness of the volunteers and professionals who willingly put themselves in harm's way to try and save them. This is a cautionary tale for anyone who hikes the White Mountains in winter.
The presentation will begin at 7:00 PM and will last approximately 1 hour.
