The Nepal Chronicles

August 15   7:00 pm        Dan Szczesny

When Dan Szczesny and his wife, Meenakshi, traveled to Nepal to marry in Kathmandu and trek to the Everest Base Camp, they knew the journey would be difficult. What they didn't realize was how life-changing their time in the land of mountains would be. 


From the chaos of Kathmandu's super-charged streets to the tranquil but challenging trails of the Himalayas, The Nepal Chronicles is a deeply felt exploration of the culture and history of one of the world's most complex places, and is a meditation on the author's own personal journey into a new family and relationship unlike any he's ever experienced.
