Join author, entrepreneur and adventurer Sequoia Schmidt for a special Q&A and a reading from her autobiography Journey of Heart: A sojourn to K2. This will be Sequoia's first time returning to New Zealand since her famed mountaineering father Marty Schmidt, and her 25-year-old brother Denali Schmidt, were killed in an avalanche on the mountain, K2. Now, four years after their deaths, Sequoia is a published author of the award-winning book Journey of Heart: A sojourn to K2. Sequoia will bring her writing with her as she cycles the entire length of the country, stopping in nine cities to sign and perform readings from her non-fiction account. The plan is one bike, nine cities and four adventure sports to be accomplished on this trip to New Zealand titled: Returning Home - The Adventure Book Tour. There will be opportunities to buy a copy and have it personally signed.
