Join us for a very special Sherb Talk evening with Hilaree Nelson. Hilaree's talk, "Daring Greatly", will include a mix of photos and video and will include how she got started in the world of mountaineering, with a focus on the ski descent of Lhotse this last fall. Her talk will be dedicated to the discussion behind the trials and tribulations of failure, raising kids, passion as a compass.

Sherb Talk: "Forced Conversion and Spanish Jewry”; a CU Peak to Peak Roundtable with Rebecca Wartell
The forced conversion of half of Spain’s Jews to Christianity during the Inquisition period (1391-1492) left a legacy of Crypto-Jewry that continues to impact families in modern times. This workshop will consider rabbinic texts that address the challenges of conversion in the early modern period, as well as contemporary approaches to the issue of conversos reclaiming their Jewish identities.
Kitty Banner Seemann, once an Alaskan-based glacier and bush pilot renowned for piloting climbers, explorers, adventurers and fisherman into the wilds and bush of Alaska in the 1970s and 80s will present on her recently released narrative detailing her experiences, "Wings of Her Dreams".
