Kip's desert book club
desert reckoning by deanne stillman
august 7, 2017 in north joshua tree



I am happy to report that Deanne Stillman, author of Desert Reckoning, will be joining us at 7:00 on August 7th to talk about this book and also her other work, including Twentynine Palms, which we read last August. The subtitle of this book is: "A town sheriff, a Mojave hermit, and the biggest manhunt in modern California history." I learned a lot about the Antelope Valley from this work and highly recommend it. Mary Sibley just finished Desert Reckoning and said she couldn't put it down! 

We will be returning to Nancy's desert cabin in the Copper Mountain Mesa area of north Joshua Tree. From downtown JT, go East on Hwy. 62, turn left on Sunburst, right on Golden, left on Border and keep an eye out for the Pole and Del Oro street signs. Turn right on Winters Rd. (sign on left side of road) look for the white Book Club sign. Drive about 6 miles and Nancy will be on your right after you pass Mile Square Rd. From 29 Palms, Go West on Hwy. 62, turn right on Sunfair and continue past the pavement where the road turns into Coyote Valley, go about 3 miles and turn right on Winters, Nancy's white cabin will be on the right after you pass Mile Square Rd. This will be an outdoor meeting, so bring your folding chairs if you have them. See you at Nancy's and remember to bring snacks and drinks! —Kip
