We are excited to launch the AAC book club! As a project of the American Alpine Club Library, this book club will focus predominantly on the vast scope of mountaineering and climbing literature.
The book club will meet on the 2nd Tuesday of every month starting on February 10, 2009 !!! We will meet in the AAC Library in the basement of the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, CO. No refreshments provided, so please bring your own beverages. All beverages must have a lid. Come early and browse the library or just hang out.
Feb 10th: 1st book to be discussed: Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson !!
