William Hillyard to Read in Wonder Valley

William Hillyard to read from Welcome to Wonder Valley 1:00 to 3:00 p.m., Saturday, February 2, 2019 (after the Farmers Market and just before The Palms opens!) at the Wonder Valley Community Center 80526 1/2 Amboy Road, Wonder Valley CA 92277 There is a $2 suggested donation to support future events. If you can't afford $2, please be our guest. What is it about Wonder Valley that brings people across the Morongo Basin, across the state, even around the globe to spend a day or two in this little patch of sand? Come hear local author William Hillyard read sections from his forth-coming book Welcome to Wonder Valley. Hillyard has known and spent time with more local characters than anyone else and has seen firsthand what makes these enduring and endearing characters tick. His book offers insight into both the fortitude and eccentricities that make life bearable in a no-horse town, with bad water, and temperatures topping 120 in the summer. Hillyard will answer questions, and talk about the writing process. A $2 donation helps support events like this, but if you don’t have the money, please be our guest.
