Our Desert Writers Celebration, held under a full moon at the 29 Palms Inn on the Oasis of Mara, was a great evening of writers, poets, books, food (including our favorite Joshua Treets Ice Cream), music, and fire dancing.
James Sulos, president of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., joined author Robin Maxwell during a presentation on Maxwell’s new book, JANE: The Woman Who Loved Tarzan; and authors and poets like Naomi Lake from Borrego Springs, read from their work and signed their books. Naomi’s work, “Spring Stream,” was published in our Desert Writers Issue, and her husband, Don Barrie, is a cover photographer for The Sun Runner.
After the sun set and the full moon rose, Lacey Anderson set the night afire with incredible dance performances. A Tarzan and Jane theme brought folks out in safari gear and animal skins, while Indy and his ice cream wallas served up delicious Joshua Treets Ice Cream throughout the evening. Tarzan (and Jane) would have been proud.
