Socially-Distanced Signing with Jim Davidson!
Old Firehouse Books is delighted to host at socially-distanced book signing with Colorado author Jim Davidson, in celebration of his latest book, The Next Everest! Jim will be signing copies of his book on Saturday, April 24th, from 11:30am to 1:30pm just outside the store.
Weather permitting, this event will be taking place out front of our store, and we require that you wear a mask and remain 6-feet apart when in line. Readers will have the chance to say hi to this amazing author and have their books signed. Books can be purchased in advance of the event, or on the day of, but we do ask that you purchase your books inside the store before joining the signing line outside of it. (Weather not permitting, the event will be rescheduled to a later date.)
After spending two unsettling days stranded on Everest, Davidson's team was rescued by helicopter. The experience left him shaken, and despite his thirty-three years of climbing and serving as an expedition leader, he wasn’t sure that he would ever go back. But in the face of risk and uncertainty, he returned in 2017 and finally achieved his dream of reaching the summit. Suspenseful and engrossing, The Next Everest portrays the experience of living through the biggest disaster to ever hit the mountain. Davidson's background in geology and environmental science makes him uniquely qualified to explain how this natural disaster unfolded and why the seismic threats lurking beneath Nepal are even greater today. But this story is not about “conquering” the world’s highest peak. Instead, it reveals how embracing change, challenge, and uncertainty prepares anyone to face their “next Everest” in life.
Books can be shipped anywhere within the United States (unfortunately, we cannot ship internationally).
