Author Event // Thirty Years in a White Haze
Join Dan Egan for a Q & A session about his book and adventures followed by a signing.
Thirty Years in a White Haze, Dan Egan's story of worldwide adventure and the evolution of extreme skiing chronicles Dan's trials, successes, and losses, as well as the technological boom and subsequent growth of the outdoor media industry. The book maps time and space, unraveling history as Egan ties together his own family's story, the ever-present mortality of his namesake, his grandfather's involvement in desegregating Boston's schools, and the rise of extreme skiing and technology into the new millennium. An ode to a life filled with curiosity, growth, freedom, and its costs, Dan Egan and Eric Wilbur's new book promises a heavy dose of humor, suspense, thrill, and documentary, as thirty years of haze dissipates to clarity.
