The evenings featured speaker, Ty Gagne, is the author of Where You’ll Find Me: Risk, Decisions, and the Last Climb of Kate Matrosova.

This is a story about Kate Matrosova, an avid mountaineer, who set off before sunrise on Feb. 15, 2015 for a traverse of the Northern Presidential Range in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. Late the following day, rescuers carried her frozen body out of the mountains amid some of the worst weather ever recorded on these deceptively rugged slopes. What went wrong?

Where You’ll Find Me offers possible answers to that question, demonstrating why Matrosova’s story—what we know and what we will never know—represents such an intriguing and informative case study in risk analysis and decision-making
