Our Dock Street Salon reading series welcomes a special guest: Leif Whittaker, the youngest son of Northwest mountaineering legend Jim Whittaker, who has quickly built quite an Alpine resume of his own. Whittaker will be discussing his new book, “My Old Man and the Mountain, a memoir of ‘growing up Whittaker'” and of his own climbs of Mount Everest, the peak his father became the first American to summit in 1963.
