Author Mary Farrell with Kay LeClaire

Kay LeClaire, Spokane resident, is the oldest woman in the world to climb the Seven Summits—the highest peaks of the seven continents. She says everybody knows about Mount Everest (of which she is not the oldest female climber) but rarely do the Seven Summits get recognition. Kay will talk with kids about what it takes to climb the highest peaks in the world, show off her gear and explain its uses and read from her new book for kids “Journey to the Top of the World.”
