This month we are reading Robbing The Bees, A Biography of Honey by Holley Bishop.
In order to learn more about the culture and history of honey, Bishop apprenticed herself to Donald Smiley, a beekeeper in the Florida Panhandle. Robbing The Bees intersperses her experiences working with the winged insects with the science and lore of honey.
Michael Pollan says about the book, ” Holley Bishop’s love affair with honeybees combines natural and social history with gastronomy and memoir to produce a delicious reading experience.”
We will meet at Rabelais to discuss the world of bees on Tuesday October 7th from 6:00 to 7:30 pm. The book is now available at Rabelais. The book is $14 and there is a 10% discount for Slow Food members.
Come one, come all!
