Winner of the 2015 Boardman Tasker Prize, Barry Blanchard, and shortlisted author Sandy Allan are hosting a fundraising event at Canmore Library.
Barry will be presenting his book The Calling: A Life Rocked by Mountains, an honest and visceral account in which Barry tells of a life devoted to climbing at the highest level, and Sandy will be revealing the story behind his epic ascent of Nanga Barbat’s Mazeno Ridge, retold in his debut book, In Some Lost Place. Donations contributed during the event ensure that the Trust can support mountaineering writers for many years to come. All donations will go to the Boardman Tasker Charitable Trust.
