Not in a million years would I think that the Desert Book Club might be reading Flaubert. When John Alexis suggested The Temptation of St. Anthony as the February selection, he could see that I was rather surprised at the thought. It turns out that this work is not only set in the desert, but it also explores "the desert of the mind" as John put it so well.
Come join us on February 6th at Mother House, a space Laurence and John Alexis have dedicated exclusively to spiritual practice. To find Mother House from downtown JT, drive north on Sunburst from Hwy. 62, turn right on Golden, turn left on Border, keep an eye out for Pole and Del Oro roads, then turn left on Winters (sign on the left) and drive 1 1/4 mile on dirt to Shangri La and turn left. Mother House will be on your right in less than a quarter mile, look for the big white book club signs starting at Winters to help you find your way. —Kip
