Got your ticket for the Boysen book launch?

Tuesday, 10th June 2014

Taking place at Hathersage’s Outside café on 2 July, the official Boysen book launch will be a heady affair of tea, cake and top-end mountain literature. We’ll be celebrating the release of Martin Boysen’s autobiography, Hanging On, which looks set to become a classic of UK mountaineering literature.

With a refreshing dose of wry wit and insightful humour, Hanging On charts Martin’s eclectic mountaineering and climbing experiences during the ‘golden age’ of British climbing. Martin’s deep love of nature and hunger for adventure have led him from the crags of North Wales to Annapurna, Everest and beyond – a journey that has seen him cross paths with some of climbing’s most inspiring and colourful personalities.

The launch will include a free buffet and drink, as well as the chance to hear Martin giving readings from Hanging On and see a selection of the book's images. Doors will open at 7pm with the launch kicking-off at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £5 and are available from the Outside website – they’ll sell out quickly, so book now and scribble it in the imaginary diary. All welcome!

Hanging On is available to pre-order now.
