Mark Bryant was the editor of Outside Magazine in 1996 and sent Jon Krakauer not only to climb Mount Everest, but to write about the dangers of the increasing commercialization and crowding on the world's highest peak. When things went disastrously wrong on the mountain, he worked with Krakauer to edit the story that eventually became the best-seller Into Thin Air. In this audio interview, Bryant discusses the rise of adventure writing and the decision to send Krakauer on an assignment that could easily have claimed his life.
Mark Bryant and Jon Krakauer will speak at Colorado College on Wednesday, April 20 from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in Armstrong Hall. FREE tickets will be handed out at the door on a first-come-first-served basis.
