Live From Joshua Tree, a live and virtual spoken word event, is an annual fundraiser for the non-profit military support organization, Mil-Tree. Curated and hosted by Mil-tree founder, Cheryl Montelle, the evening is a brilliantly entertaining celebration or desert stories, songs, and poetry, that never fails to leave attendees in awe of the depth and diversity of this desert community.

This year’s event will feature Liz Lapp (owner of The Magazine Store in 29 Palms), Nadia Clark (First Responder and Military Veteran), Omar Columbus (Military Veteran, photographer, and writer), Glen Harris (community leader, activist, philanthropist).
