Kip's Desert Book Club
refuge - terry tempest williams
april 6, 2015
The April 6 Book Club selection is Refuge by Terry Tempest Williams. An extremely well crafted portrait of the Great Salt Lake area illustrated in both emotional and intellectual dimensions. I can't describe it any further without running the risk of ruining the journey you will take with the author when you read it.
Pat will be our host at her house near the corner of Saturn and Coyote Valley in North Joshua Tree. If you are coming from downtown Joshua Tree, drive east on Hwy 62 and turn left on Sunburst, right on Golden, left on Border, drive 5 miles and look for Pole and then Del Oro Streets, then turn right on Winters, (look for the sign on left side of road, and the white Book Club sign) and then drive 4 miles just past the Copper Mountain Mesa Community Center and turn left on Mockingbird. Drive about a half mile and turn right on Saturn and Pat's green house will be the first one on the left.
From 29 Palms, the fastest way would be to turn north on Sunfair from Hwy 62 and drive past the Joshua Tree Lakes campground to where the road turns to dirt and changes its name to Coyote Valley. Continue past the stop sign at Winters and look for the Book Club sign that guides you to make a very sharp left turn on Saturn. Pat's green house will be the first one on the right. As always, I'll have white Book Club signs to guide you in.
On the horizon for May is the book Point Last Seen by Hannah Nyala, the true story of a woman desert tracker. June will feature a special visit from Nancy Floyd, author of She's Got A Gun, so bring your personal copies to be signed. Hope to see you at the next meeting!
