WELCOME TO PHOENIX

Welcome to Greater Phoenix, also known as "the valley of the sun." As you'll quickly discover, one of its great pleasures is exploring its multi-faceted personality.

As the country's sixth-largest city, Phoenix has close to 1.3 million residents and approximately 2.8 million in the metro area as a whole. It offers unsurpassed golf at 190 courses, the supreme vacation experience at Five-Star/Five-Diamond resorts and spas, an intimate look at the unusual beauty of the Sonoran Desert, year-round outdoor recreational opportunities, fine dining, upscale shopping, satisfying cultural experiences and much more. Along with some of the best weather in the world, it's easy to see why more than 12 million travelers visit Phoenix annually.

To appreciate how Phoenix became a world-class city in just over a century, you need only take a look at its place in American western history. From about A.D. 300 to 1450 the earliest people to live in Salt River Valley, the ancient Hohokam, had a thriving and sophisticated culture that produced pottery that today is the pride of many museums. They constructed an involved system of canals to irrigate crops that flourished along the Salt River. A present-day canal following the path of one that was built more than 600 years ago pays tribute to their ingenuity.

Greater Phoenix gives visitors the opportunity to enjoy countless activities ranging from outstanding museums, galleries, performing arts, fine dining, horseback riding and cowboy shoot-outs. The climate makes outdoor activities, such as desert jeep tours and hot-air ballooning, a way of life. Phoenix will be an excellent venue for the 198th Meeting of the Society.

Purple lantana, bougainvillea and cassia surround the terraces of Taliesin, which complement the natural Sonoran vegetation. Designed by architectural genius Frank Lloyd Wright, Taliesin West was designed to be a bold new architectural experiment. The designs reflect Wright's basic ideas and his philosophy that integrated buildings with their surroundings. With its mission to advance the principles of organic architecture as described by Frank Lloyd Wright, Taliesin West, originally a desert winter camp for Wright and his followers, reflects the unique design and character of its surroundings. Following the Insights Tour of the grounds and living room, sit in the Wright's designed furniture and experience firsthand the drama of being a guest in Wright's famous living room.

Morning Book Chat - 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM (Sundance Room, First Floor, Hyatt Regency Phoenix Hotel)

This morning, the Nontechnical Registrants will spend an hour discussing the best-selling novel entitled, "Animal Dreams" by Barbara Kingsolver. "Animals dream about the things they do in the daytime, just like people do. If you want sweet dreams, you've got to live a sweet life." So says Loyd Peregrina, a handsome trainman and latter-day philosopher. But when Codi Noline returns to her hometown, Loyd's advice is painfully out of her reach. Dreamless and at the end of her rope, Codi comes back to Grace, Arizona, to confront her past and face her ailing, distant father. What she finds is a town threatened by a silent environmental catastrophe, some startling clues to her own identity, and a man whose view of the world could change the course of her life. Animal Dreams is a suspenseful love story and a moving exploration of life's largest commitments. (from http://www.kingsolver.com/books/Animal.html).
