Milewski successfully summited Indonesia’s 16,024-foot Mount Carstensz Pyramid on the island of New Guinea on Aug. 15 and completed a mission he started in 2007 — to climb all Seven Summits — the highest mountain on each continent.

Milewski, as the initial Vose Library Armchair Adventure speaker, will talk about this amazing feat — approximately 160 people in the world have successfully achieved this goal, according to the release.

Refreshments and conversation will follow the talk in the main lobby.
