When Leonardo Bravo, director of Education and Public Programs at the Palm Springs Art Museum's Architecture and Design Center suggested that the Desert Book Club meet at the museum, I jumped at the chance. When I suggested that he make the monthly desert book selection, Desert Notes by Barry Lopez was mentioned, a small but powerful volume which I have found highly satifying.
Due to the fact that none of us wants to drive down highway 62 with the sun in our eyes, we will meet at 3:00 in the afternoon on Monday, May 1st. If there is a line at the nearest Trader Joe's or Bev Mo, I realize some of you could be a bit late. Since art museums are typically a bit fussy about eating and drinking in their galleries, we will be working on an arrangement that suits our needs, so don't forget the drinks and snacks. Also, bring a folding chair if you have one.
To get to the museum from downtown JT, take hwy. 62 West and turn left on Indian Canyon at the bottom of the hill. Drive into Palm Springs and turn right on E. Alejo and then left on Palm Canyon where it becomes a one way street. The museum will be on your left at 300 South Palm Canyon Drive right after W. Baristo Rd. Keep an eye out for Lulu restaurant one block before. I'll have a white Book Club sign in the driveway. See you at the museum! —Kip
