Free! High & Hallowed Feb 28, 7pm, Wheeler Theatre, Fort Worden State Park

We help kick off PT Library's Community Read with our favorite local mountaineers and the film High & Hallowed. The film, about the 1963 American conquest of Mt. Everett, with original footage, is a favorite. The Community Read: "My Old Man and the Mountain", a memoir by Leif Whittaker, Jim Whittaker's son. High & Hallowed, directed by David Morton and Jake Norton, is the deeper story of the greatest Himalayan climb in American mountaineering history. And we are fortunate to have both world-renowned climbers, Jim and Dianne Whittaker (the first woman to climb K-2, to share their memories, introduce the film and stay after for Q&A. A rare appearance by local heroes!
