The Natrona County Public Library will host an afternoon with Himalaya expert and Wyoming author Broughton Coburn Saturday, October 5 at 2 p.m. in the Crawford Room. Coburn’s illustrated program “The Vast Unknown,” based on his most recent book, is a riveting chronicle of the iconic first American expedition to Mount Everest, in the spring of 1963. Featuring “an unusual selection of archival, modern day and seldom seen images,” Coburn’s presentation is free and open to the public.
The author will sign books afterwards, and copies will be available to purchase. Works by Coburn include “Everest: Mountain Without Mercy,” “Aama in America: A Pilgrimage of the Heart,” “Triumph on Everest: A Photobiography of Sir Edmund Hillary,” and “Nepali Aama: Portrait of a Nepalese Hill Woman.” Call 577-READ (7323) for more information.
