Back of Beyond Conversation Series: The Limits of the Known: Our Relationship to Risk

In our on-going conversational series at the store we pair David Roberts and Moab climber Steph Davis together for an evening of discussion on the theme of risk.   David Roberts, a well known friend of Moab comes to Back of Beyond to discuss his new book, Limits of the Known and to reflect on humanity's and his own relationship to extreme risk. Steph Davis' latest book, Learning to Fly--A Memoir of Hanging On and Letting Go delves deeply into this theme of risk and what levels of constraint we  place on ourselves. David and Steph will lead us in a discussion not only about the risks we've courted by way of extreme adventure, but the risks that court us by way of illness.
