Lina Arthur: Snow & Ice - The Writing of a Winter Mountaineering Guidebook
Thursday 30 November 2023, 07:30pm
Thursday 30 November 2023

Pinning down how guidebooks are written can be as elusive as UK winter conditions; many people erroneously think guidebook writers spend all their time climbing! 

Lina Arthur's book, 'Snow & Ice', highlights 100 winter mountaineering routes across the UK, providing clear photo topos, accurate maps and inspiring action shots, but writing it didn't always go exactly to plan. In this talk, Lina shares the highs and lows of winter guidebook writing and invites us to look behind the printed page into how guidebooks are made.

Venue:  The Greta Suite of the Skiddaw Hotel, Main Street, Keswick, CA12 5BL.
