One of HeidiTown’s favorite authors in Denver this month

Where Men Win GloryJon 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.
