Bees - That's What I'm Talking About

Illustration by Kyrsten Brooker, from the end papers of The Honeybee Man
Yesterday, I was a guest on June Stoyer's show, The Organic View, discussing bees, honey, and The Honeybee Man. It's been a loooooong time since I've done a radio interview but that didn't stop me from talking, a lot - 45 minutes almost straight, without commercial interruptions (big surprise to my friends and family).

I was especially grateful to all the listeners who Twittered in with their thoughtful questions; it's nice to know there are so many bee-lovers out there!

You can get an earful from me by visiting the show's site and downloading the podcast...

And find another great review of the book at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Thank You!!

Thanks so much to all of you who came down to BookCourt on Sunday, to hear me read The Honeybee Man and to fold amazing origami bees and cherry blossoms with Mao. Hopefully, your handiwork will soon be gracing the windows of the shop - stayed tuned for photos.

Meanwhile, this photo was taken by my friend Josh at the Queens County Farm Museum; the license plate belongs to none other than the Farm's own resident apiarist. For those of you who thought urban honey was only found in Brooklyn, take note! It's coming to a borough near you - if it hasn't arrived already!

BookCourt & Bees

The photo says it all. Except this: after reading the book, we'll be making bee and flower origami to hang in the window of BookCourt. Come discover how truly rotten I am at this ancient Japanese craft!

And in case you missed it, here's the latest nice write-up of The Honeybee Man
