Mountain Arts Festival – Reading Mountaineering Books: workshop with Professor Terry Gifford
What is your favourite mountaineering book? What do you enjoy most when reading such a book? Boardman Tasker judge Terry Gifford will give out five anonymous passages for discussion and to see if a ‘winner’ can emerge from a consensus in the group. Terry is Founding Director of the annual International Festival of Mountaineering Literature and an author of poetry, books of ecocriticism and climbing journalism.
The Mountain Arts Festival 2016 brings together an exceptional group of artists, climbers, speakers and filmmakers for a celebration of the Arts in the context of mountainous landscape. Proceeds from the Mountain Arts Festival will support the Nepal Earthquake Appeal of Community Action Nepal. Find out more at www.themountainartsfestival.com
