Mountain Guru: Doug Scott's Biographer, Catherine Moorehead, in Conversation with Dr Jeremy Windsor
Thursday 09 November 2023, 07:30pm - 10:30pm
Thursday 09 November 2023

Doug Scott was a legend among mountaineers. In her book 'Mountain Guru', Catherine Moorehead uncovers the elusive man behind the obsessive mountaineer, from his rumbustious youth in Nottingham to his formidable global reputation as a mountaineer.

In conversation with Dr Jeremy Windsor, Catherine will discuss Doug's life, legacy and expeditions as well as digging into the process of writing a book about such a well-loved figure.

The book will be available to purchase on the night, so please bring cash if you'd like to pick up a copy.

The talk will be held in The Padley Room of The Sir William Hotel, Grindleford, S32 2HS. If you wish to eat prior to the talk, please place an order with the venue at least 48 hours in advance so that they can cater for expected numbers. The Sir William can be contacted on 01433 631 167.

All are welcome to attend and the talk is free for AC members on production of your AC membership card and students on production of a valid NUS card. Non-members are asked to make a donation of £3 towards the cost of the lecture.
