Author at Bookstore
Cathryn J. Prince ’09 M.S. American Studies, will discuss her latest book, “Queen of the Mountaineers,” on Thursday, July 18 at 7 p.m. on the 2nd floor of the Fairfield University Bookstore, 1499 Post Road, Fairfield. This event is free and open to the public. Walk-in welcome. Books available for purchase/signing at the event. Prince brings Fanny Bullock Workman to life, revealing how she navigated the male-dominated world of alpine clubs and adventure societies as nimbly as she navigated the deep crevasses and icy granite walls of the Himalayas. “Queen of the Mountaineers” is the story of one woman's role in science and exploration, breaking boundaries and charting frontiers for women everywhere.
