Q. Who's Erik Weihenmayer?

Erik is the first blind person to reach the top of Mount Everest and climb the Seven Summits. He's kayaked the Grand Canyon—277 challenging miles that inspired his book No Barriers.
Q. What is Agape Latte?
A. An engaging discussion on faith and college life in an inviting social environment. Students enjoy desserts, coffee, and conversations. Agape Latte celebrates 10 years at Boston College this year. This series is sponsored by Campus Ministry and the Church in the 21st Century Center.
