Tommy Caldwell and Gabriel Tallent will speak about and sign their new books, The Push: A Climber's Journey of Endurance, Risk, and Going Beyond Limits and My Absolute Darling, on Monday, September 25th at 7:30pm.
About The Push:
On January 14, 2015, Tommy Caldwell, along with his partner, Kevin Jorgeson, summited what is widely regarded as the hardest climb in history — Yosemite's nearly vertical 3,000-foot Dawn Wall, after nineteen days on the route. Caldwell's odds-defying feat was the culmination of an entire lifetime of pushing himself to his limits as an athlete. The Push is a story of drive, endurance, and transformation, a book that will appeal to anyone seeking to overcome fear and doubt, cultivate perseverance, and find connection with family and with the natural world.
About My Absolute Darling:
At fourteen, Turtle Alveston roams the woods along the northern California coast. But while her physical world is expansive, her personal one is small and treacherous: Turtle has grown up isolated, in the thrall of her tortured and charismatic father, Martin. Then Turtle meets Jacob, a high-school boy who tells jokes, lives in a clean house, and looks at Turtle as if she is the sunrise. Motivated by her first experience with real friendship and a teenage crush, Turtle starts to imagine her escape. My Absolute Darling is a profoundly moving read that marks the debut of an extraordinary new writer.
