“Where you'll find me:
Risk, decisions, and the last climb of Kate Matrosova” by Ty Gagne to be One Book One Valley’s 2018 title.

book cover where you'll find me

MOUNT WASHINGTON VALLEY--Program planners for One Book One Valley, the regional “big read” program entering its thirteenth year, are pleased to announce this year’s title, “Where you'll find me: Risk, decisions, and the last climb of Kate Matrosova.”

This true story looks at a winter hike across the Presidential Traverse from both the hiker’s and rescuers’ points of view. Gagne gives a nonjudgmental risk manager’s perspective to what many of us may remember as a deeply unsettling hiking tragedy.


Planned by area librarians along with White Birch Books’ Laura Cummings, One Book One Valley 2018 will kick off in September after Labor Day. Participating libraries, schools, and White Birch Books will have copies of “Where you'll find me: Risk, decisions, and the last climb of Kate Matrosova” to borrow or purchase. During the months of September through November, several participating libraries will host programs and presentations relating to themes in the book.


One Book One Valley 2018 will culminate with valley-wide author events.

One Book One Valley’s participating institutions are libraries in Bartlett, Chocorua, Conway, Effingham, Freedom, Jackson, Madison, Moultonborough, North Conway, Ossipee, Sandwich and Tamworth in New Hampshire, and Bridgton, Brownfield, Fryeburg, and Lovell in Maine, plus Kennett High School, Granite State College (Conway), and White Birch Books in North Conway.
