Library Live at Labyrinth: Kara Richardson Whitely

August 9, 2017, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

The author discusses and signs copies of her book “Gorge: My Journey Up Kilimanjaro at 300 Pounds” in which she chronicles her experience hiking Mount Kilimanjaro three times. Among other critical acclaim, the book has been called one of  “Five Fabulous, Possibly Life-Changing Books” by Redbook magazine.

“In Gorge, Kara Richardson Whitely takes us where few have dared to go before: thrillingly up to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro and profoundly down to the darkest depths of food addiction. Kara is fearlessly honest and powerfully intelligent. I was moved and inspired by every page of this beautiful book.”—Cheryl Strayed, author of Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

“This detailed account of [Kara Richardson Whitely’s] travails will give confidence not only to hesitant would-be mountaineers but to those, like her, whose biggest hurdle is ‘to learn to be O.K. with who I was.'”—The New York Times
