Sarah Jane Douglas

Just Another Mountain

Festival Marquee
Sun 29 Sep

In 1997, Sarah Jane Douglas lost her mother to cancer. Distraught, she took solace in mountains, tackling all of Scotland’s Munros and finally the Himalayan peak that had killed the man who would have been her stepfather. So when she was diagnosed with cancer herself, she treated it as “just another mountain”. She talks about her inspiring memoir of maternal love, recovery and perseverance. [207]
