EVENT: Brendan Leonard--Sixty Meters to Anywhere--FREE!Posted by Adventure 16 | 05.17.2016
Sixty Meters to Anywhere
How to Change Your Life by Completely Ruining it First
Brendan Leonard has made a career out of having fun in the mountains—more than 400,000 readers annually visit his website, Semi-Rad.com, for his goofball take on outdoor sports, and the “relentless pursuit of the everyman’s adventure.” As a full-time freelance writer and filmmaker, he’s made a living telling stories about the outdoors, but it hasn’t always been that fun—his path to the mountains started in a much darker place.
In his “motivational stand-up comedy” show, Sixty Meters to Anywhere, Brendan shares his story, and how adversity can eventually lead to an outlook of enthusiasm and gratitude. The talk parallels the story in his new book from Mountaineers Books, Sixty Meters to Anywhere. Expect to laugh (at and with the presenter), maybe get a lump in your throat, and definitely leave inspired.
HAPPY HALF-HOUR: 6:30pm; PRESENTATION: 7:00pm
Wednesday, June 29: A16 San Diego Store
Thursday, June 30: A16 West Los Angeles Store
Copies of Sixty Meters to Anywhere will be available for purchase at Adventure 16 the evening of the show.
