Dr. Mimi Zieman with Dr. Arlene Blum – Tap Dancing On Everest

May 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

You can say Arlene Blum’s book Annapurna: A Woman’s Place inspired Dr. Mimi Zieman before she embarked on a solo trek around Nepal in 1985. Meet these two adventurers, scientists, advocates and authors as they discuss Mimi’s memoir Tap Dancing on Everest, a coming of age story framed around her role as the doctor on a daring Everest expedition in Tibet.

A legendary trailblazer, Arlene Blum defied the climbing establishment of the 1970s by leading the first all-female teams on successful ascents of Mount McKinley and Annapurna and by being the first American woman to attempt Mount Everest.
