Imagine on Air presents Harley Rustad and his fascinating new book, Lost in the Valley of Death: A Story of Obsession and Danger in The Himalayas. Later in the hour, he’ll also be joined by Calgary's Raksha Vasudevan, Rustad’s mentee in The Writers' Trust 2022 mentorship program.
The hour-long conversation will start at 7:00 PM MT and will be hosted by Wordfest’s CEO and Creative Ringleader Shelley Youngblut. (The pre-show will begin at 6:50 PM.) The live stream event is free- and if you RSVP, we'll send you a reminder on the day of the show, as well as our unique Digital Doggie Bag recap with a watch-on-demand link and bonus extras sparked by the conversation.
We are grateful to Penguin Random House Canada for making it possible for us to connect you with Harley Rustad.
