scout series book release
at the 2017 laabf, february 24-26
#3 eden solas

HDTS is excited to announce the release of our latest labor of love, #3 of our Scout Book Series at the LAABF 2017!

Part of our ongoing Scout Residency, Tender Tinder Tarot Teacher chronicles a year of Eden Solas' daily encounters with the new age, the desert dating scene, economic hardships, and small everyday trials and triumphs through her role of payday loan attendant. Solas’ short stories touch intimately on the breadth of lives in the High Desert region. 

Unlike many residencies, where an outside artist is brought in to create work along the lines of their existing practice, the Scout Residency is centered less on the production of an artwork, and more on learning, engaging, interpreting, and ultimately reflecting new perspective on the places and people that we interact with on a daily basis. Scouts are dedicated to connecting with the diverse people and places that make up our ever-evolving high desert community. The Scout Book Series collects and presents the cumulated individual experiences of our residents.

In conjunction with the launch of her book, Eden read visitors' tarot cards at our LA Art Book Fair booth.

This project is supported in part by a grant from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.

Scout Book #3 is now available for purchase through our online shop!
