Join author, entrepreneur and adventurer Sequoia Schmidt in Dunedin for a special Q&A and a reading from her autobiography: Journey of Heart; A Sojourn to K2.

It has been ten long years since Sequoia returned to her homeland, New Zealand – a land that holds some beautiful memories of her past, and also her pain. This will be Sequoia's first return since her famed mountaineering father, Marty Schmidt, and her 25-year-old brother Denali Schmidt, were killed in an avalanche on the mountain, K2.

Now, four years after their deaths, Sequoia is a published author of the award-winning book Journey of Heart: A Sojourn to K2.

Sequoia will bring her writing with her as she cycles the entire length across the country stopping in nine cities to sign and performing readings from the book.
