Robbinsville author Ray Carpenter will visit City Lights Bookstore on Saturday, Nov. 22, at 3 p.m. to present his book, “Beesch.”
Having learned from his grandfather at an early age to respect the honey bee, Carpenter made a promise to his grandfather to one day write about honey bees. This promise drove him to research bees his entire life. The result, “Beesch,” published by Catch the Spirit of Appalachia, is the story of Allie and Callie, identical twin female worker honey bees – a story that is interlaced with a narrator storyteller who shares the story of the honey bee, its hive, and its environment. Within this book, readers will understand some of the reasons the honey bee is mysteriously disappearing – a “mystery” that has provoked much human thought and concern.
