Linda and I left Lancaster,Ohio and drove just a few miles to Lithopolis,Ohio to celebrate National Honey Month,meet old friends and make new ones. The grounds of the Wagnalls Memorial Library made a BeesPerfect setting for the event. For more on the library and Lithopolis check out my earlier post.
MORE ABOUT BARRY CONRAD The mission of the Lithopolis Honeyfest as stated in their program,”Experience the science and art of Apiculture (Beekeeping),and create a robust atmosphere of Art,Music.Food,Fun and People. I wasn’t expecting a “Book Signing” at this event but there sure was. I am now the proud owner of “Naomi the Queen Bee” by Kristen Fea-Clark.
Kristen resides in Clayton, Ohio with her husband, Bill, her son, Kollin, and their two, furry friends, Salvador and Tawny. Take a second to visit her website and learn more.
I have made an early start on my Christmas shopping for the Grand Children with the purchase of this book. Not only that, I now know why “A queen bee must have a heart ten times the size of an ordinary bee.” You will just have to read the book yourself to learn the answer. For easy shopping click. Next, a few exhibits for the Arts & Crafts:
The way Arnold Crabtree (The Bee Man) of the area sees it, “One thing I know from working with bees is that all life can’t be created with just a boom. There’s more to it than that. No one can spend time in a hive and not see the power of God and His presence.” Of course info on bees and music from Dave Hawkins (Dave is an Americana artist with his Irish roots showing.) and Luxury Brown to name a few.
