The Sheltering Sky is a 1949 novel of post-colonial alienation and existential despair by American writer and composer Paul Bowles. The story centers on Port Moresby and his wife Kit, a married couple originally from New York who travel to the North African desert accompanied by their friend Tunner. The journey, initially an attempt by Port and Kit to resolve their marital difficulties, is quickly fraught by the travelers' ignorance of the dangers that surround them.
We will meet in the Library Room at Professor Java's. To the left as you walk in. Reserving the whole room requires a $90 deposit, but all food/drink ordered offsets that amount. Please consider having dinner or one of their yummy desserts with us that evening.
PLEASE, please update your RSVP as soon as you know you cannot make it.
