Book Brave: an eclectic book club

Your favorite, all-access book club returns for good this  May.  We heard your feedback and by your popular demand, Book Brave will resume its regular schedule of meeting every third Monday of the month.  As a reminder: the Book Brave book club explores excellent literature of all kinds. Fiction or nonfiction, we promise each selection will make you think, stretch your imagination, and challenge your preconceived notions.


Just over 50 years ago Edward Abbey put out what was arguably his most famous work, DESERT SOLITAIRE. Now the desert tranquility that so transformed him is nowhere to be found and our cultural ideas about who belongs in nature have changed so much that Abbey's perspectives face the dangerous labels of outdated and problematic. But the question remains, is there some magic still left to be found in the desert? That is the question Amy Irvine explores in her work, DESERT CABAL, The Book Brave book club selection for July 2019.
