Jon Krakauer is best known for “Into Thin Air,” the story of the fateful 1996 season on Everest and “Into the Wild,” recently adapted as a major motion picture (read my review HERE).
Krakauer has long been one of my favorite non-fiction authors and this month he will be visiting the Tattered Cover Bookstore in Denver to discuss his newest book, “Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman.”
The event will include a silent auction to benefit Veterans Helping Veterans Now (VHVnow). Bidders may bid on signed first-edition Krakauer books, and Krakauer will match the winning bids, as well as any additional donations to VHVnow.
The event will be held on September 21, 2009, at 7:30 p.m. 275 free tickets will be given out starting on September 15. To find out more and to order your signed copy of “Where Men Win Glory” visit Tattered Cover.
