National Geographic Goes Live
The fall season of “National Geographic Live!” events is in full swing, featuring presentations by world-renowned explorers, scientists, photographers and performance artists. The lineup includes concerts, documentary screenings, insightful discussions and more.
Among the upcoming events are The Last Man on the Mountain with author Jennifer Jordan (October 7), My Father, the Captain with ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau (October 8), and The Last Speakers with linguist K. David Harrison (October 12).
The Last Man on the Mountain, shares its title with Jennifer Jordan’s new book, which tells the story of American socialite Dudley Wolfe. In 1939, Wolfe perished attempting to summit K2—abandoned at 25,000 feet. Wolfe was its first victim, and his remains were only recently discovered by Jordan in 2002. Her presentation promises to be both entertaining and moving.
