Book Release Party! Feb 27!


Sunday, February 27, 2-4 PM. 

We are celebrating three local writers with new books to share! Susan Rukeyser, Susan Abbott, and Rose Baldwin will read from and sign copies of their new work at the Retreat Book Store, located at The Joshua Tree Retreat Center. We are entering through the main gate and following the signs to the office (bookstore is close to the office). Plenty of space to social distance, and plenty of parking. Do bring a mask and your own lawn chair for your personal comfort. Also note: The Retreat Center Cafe is 1 minute away and is open from 7 AM to 2 PM. So, a fun plan is to go to lunch & then head on over to the reading. There is a restroom available at the bookstore. Bring a friend and some of your material to read! If you have questions, message us, or send rich an email - Good times!!! 

You can pre-read your copy 
& bring it along with you to the reading 
for author autograph!
Check at Space Cowboy!

$12.00                                      $7.99                                     $7.00
