[ARCHIVED] An Evening with Author Brot Coburn

Kearney Public Library welcomes Author and Himalayan expert Broughton (Brot) Coburn, Wednesday, October 2 at 7:00 p.m. at the Library, 2020 1st Avenue, Kearney, NE

In the midst of the Cold War, a band of independent-minded American mountaineers set off for Mt. Everest, aiming to restore America’s confidence and hope. Fifty years after the greatest climb in American history, this remarkable story of men and mountain is told in full through Brot Coburn’s illustrated program on the 1963 American Mount Everest Expedition, based on his latest book “The Vast Unknown: America’s First Ascent of Everest”.

Broughton is the author of seven books including three that illustrate the history, grandeur, and culture of Mount Everest. For two decades Broughton has directed development and conservation projects for the World Bank, World Wildlife Fund, and other agencies. He will be signing books following the presentation.
