The Last Beekeeper: Author Julie Carrick Dalton in conversation with Heather Webb

Thursday March 16 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for a fantastic evening with Julie Carrick Dalton and Heather Webb, in conversation to celebrate Julie’s new release, The Last Beekeeper.

Julie Carrick Dalton, author of Waiting for the Night Song, returns with The Last Beekeeper, a dazzling new novel that touches on themes of inequality, greed, nature, and environmental responsibility. But at its heart, it is a story of forgiveness and redemption for a young woman and her father – and for a world that is destroying itself. It takes place in a near-future where all of the world’s bee population has gone extinct, resulting in huge environmental, agricultural, and political upheaval.

Perfect for fans of Migrations and Station Eleven, The Last Beekeeper is a celebration of found family, an exploration of truth versus power, and the triumph of hope in the face of crisis.
