About the Event
The women in Ann McCallum Staats book Thrill Seekers: 15 Remarkable Women in Extreme Sports push the boundaries of fear and physical possibilities — whether they’re surfing monster waves, dogsledding through frigid wilderness or wingsuit flying over an active volcano. Staats, along with skydiver Melanie Curtis, cave diver Jill Heinerth, and scuba diver Ann Marie Stephens, share their stories of determination and grit in finding the courage to live life to the fullest.
