Kip's desert book Club
the joshua tree by robert cabot
december 5, 2016



Bernard Leibov has once again invited the Desert Book Club to meet at his warm and cozy BOXO House. Please join us on December 5th at 7:00 pm to discuss Robert Cabot's book, The Joshua TreeThis is a unique novel in that it is written in the form of poetry, which I realize could be off-putting for many readers. I challenge everyone to stick with it and see if it grows on you and possibly becomes enjoyable after a while. Cabot spent quite a bit of time with the famous Bill Keyes and his family, so see if this book doesn't deepen our understanding of this local character. My thinking is that between the content and the form of this work, we should be in for a lively discussion.

The BOXO House address is 62732 Sullivan Rd. Joshua Tree, CA, but don't bother to GPS yourself there, it will end in tears. Simply turn south on Whitefeather Rd. off of Hwy. 62, drive past the hospital and turn right on the second dirt road when you see the BOXO sign. Bernard's house will be the second driveway on the left with the Book Club sign in front. Bring a folding chair if you have one so we are sure to have enough seating and try to park around back near the garage if you can. See you there and don't forget to bring some delicious snacks and drinks! —Kip

Books to look forward to include: The Rope by Nevada Barr at Kip's in January and The Temptation of St. Anthony by Flaubert at Mother House in February.
