SOLD OUT: Aftershock - One Man's Quest and the Quake on Everest ‐ Guernsey Literary Festival
7:30pm - 8:30pm
7:30pm - 8:30pm
Diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer, following a major operation and six months of chemo Jules set himself the challenge of trying to climb Everest. Unfortunately, he chose 2015.
This is the true story of one man's ordeal during the deadliest disaster in the history of mountaineering on Everest, which would leave over 8,000 dead and thousands more missing and injured. While very few of us will ever find ourselves in Jules's boots, Aftershock throws up questions which transfer surprisingly well to everyday modern life.
