Photos: Andy Kirkpatrick Book Launch
- Friday 14 October 2011
Last night was the launch of Andy Kirkpatrick's new book Cold Wars. As with Ron Fawcett's autobiography, and Tony Howard's gripping book about the first ascent of the Troll Wall, Andy's launch was an intimate affair at Outside in Hathersage. Andy is an old hand when it comes to public speaking, and his delivery is quite unique – 'Jerry Lee Lewis on speed' in his own words (but think delivered by machine gun) – and the audience last night was treated to his hilarious stand-up and readings from the book.
As ever, Outside put on a great evening, the perfect warm-up for Andy's forthcoming UK Tour – more details on the Speakers from the Edge website.
Here's some photos from last night:
