As part of their Flatlands Climbing Festival, the OAC at UNL is bringing author and creator of semi-rad.com, Brendan Leonard, to speak to UNL students on Friday, March 3 at 7:30PM in the Nebraska Union. Leonard's message includes achieving sobriety through a healthy, adventurous lifestyle.
"When Brendan Leonard moved to the West at age 23, he was a mess. He had a tenuous grip on sobriety, only six months after his last drink had landed him in yet another jail cell. It was the final mistake in a long list that included multiple arrests, wrecked cars, broken bones, fistfights, and ruined relationships. In Montana, he took his first steps into the Rocky Mountains, unwittingly beginning a decade-long obsession with climbing and a journey that would take him all over the West and Europe. Written with unflinching honesty and vulnerability, Sixty Meters to Anywhere is the memoir of a barstool storyteller who left the bar and found adventure, redemption, and a life that almost never happened."
