See You At the Summit, with Randy Pierce

Randy Pierce visits Gibson's Bookstore to share his uplifting personal account of his journey through adversity to accomplishment, with See You At the Summit: My Blind Journey from the Depth of Loss to the Heights of Achievement.

Randy Pierce was on top of the world, 22 years old, fresh out of college and thriving at an excellent job. His promising future seemed certain. Then, in just two short and devastating weeks, an unexpected neurological disorder plunged him into blindness. Randy, believing his future had vanished in the blink of an eye, wondered, “How can my life have meaning now?”

About the author: Born and raised in New Hampshire, Randy spent his early years fully sighted. His transition to total blindness is far from his greatest adventure. Randy’s passion for experience encouraged him to use adversity as a positive catalyst for growth and opportunity, resulting in such amazing adventures and honors as his earning his second-degree black belt; achieving historic hiking accomplishments in New Hampshire’s White Mountains, Africa’s highest peak (Mount Kilimanjaro), and Machu Picchu in the South American Andes; winning a national marathon championship and running three consecutive Boston Marathons; competing in Tough Mudder events; and being inducted as a fan into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. In 2010, Randy and his wife Tracy founded a 501(c)3 charity called 2020 Vision Quest, which funds crucial services for the visually impaired. The Pierce's proceeds from their book “See You at the Summit” will be donated to this organization.
