Bridging Worlds - A Sherpa's Story |
Thursday, October 22 @ 7:00 pm
Pemba Sherpa and James Mcvey will share stories from their recently self-published book Bridging Worlds – A Sherpa’s Story. The inspiring tale immerses you into Pemba’s lifelong journey of resilience, passion and adventure from growing up in the Khumbu region of Nepal to becoming a professional mountaineer and starting his own adventure company here in Boulder, to opening two restaurants and ultimately becoming an active philanthropist on behalf of Sherpa people in Nepal. Pemba's life is interwoven with a number of historical events: the Nepalese Civil War, the 2014 avalanche on Everest that killed thirteen Sherpa workers, and the 2015 earthquake that killed nearly 9,000 Nepalis and left another four million homeless. Maintaining a foot in both Nepal and Colorado, Pemba offers his perspective on a range of topics, including the Everest expedition industry, life in America, and the changing Sherpa culture.
