Itinerary:
Award-winning filmmaker and author Dianne Whelan will give a presentation on her new book - Base Camp: 40 Days on Everest. In this personal and eye-opening exposť, Dianne shares gripping stories of Maoist rebels, avalanches and dead bodies surfacing out of a dying glacier. From her perspective at base camp Whelan interviews climbers, doctors and Sherpas all living for months on end in the belly of the mountain as they wait for a weather window to summit the top of the world. Woven into the personal stories of these climbers is the devastating truth of the human impact on the mountain and the eerie and unforeseen effects of climate change.
