Karakoram: Climbing Through the Kashmir Conflict | Book Launch and Illustrated Lecture with Steve Swenson

Sometimes, the best way to see the world is from 25,000 feet up. Join world-class alpinist Steve Swenson as he shares stories and images from his newly released book, Karakoram: Climbing Through the Kashmir Conflict (Mountaineers Books), which details his nearly four decades of climbing in the Karakoram Range, which spans Pakistan, India, and China. Through a 45-minute multimedia presentation, Steve explores the nature of high altitude, alpine climbing, the complexities of mounting remote expeditions, the fraught geopolitics of the region, as well as his passion for the cultural communities in this area of the world. The program will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.
