Join Denver author Johanna Garton for a discussion of her new book Edge of the Map!

One of America's greatest high altitude mountaineers, Christine Boskoff was at the top of her career when she and her partner died in an avalanche in 2006. Edge of the Map traces the sharp twists and turns in Boskoff's life, one of constant achievement mixed with personal tragedy. The story follows Boskoff as she perseveres and moves from big peak to even bigger peaks, earning acclaim as a world-class mountaineer, then later as she finds an alpine partnership with legendary Colorado climber Charlie Fowler.

Johanna Garton is a mother, proud Wisconsin girl, writer and cross country coach. She’s moved her family to China, been charged by an elephant, run 20-plus marathons and is addicted to sweaty, 6AM yoga classes. She and her husband share their home in Denver with two bright children who are much wiser than she is and the inspiration for all her story telling.
