One woman in the Himalayas

Join us on May 12 at 7:00 pm as local author and adventurer Tracy Pawelski speaks via Zoom about her newest book and adventure, One Woman in the Himalayas. Tracy will bring to life what it was like to walk in the shadow of the world’s highest mountains and brings us along on a raw and wild ride of changed plans, pivots, and decisions made in thin air. Don’t think there weren’t moments of doubt about her decision as she faced some of the toughest areas of the trek!
