Lester Laminack with KING OF BEES

Join us at The Hop for a free event with author Lester Laminack. He'll read from his new picture book The King of Bees and answer questions and sign books. 

Henry can't wait until he can have a bee suit of his own so he can help his Aunt Lilla with the sister bees. Day after day as Henry observes his Aunt Lilla work with the beehives on their Lowcountry farm, he becomes fascinated with her bee suit and her ability to communicate with the bees. When he learns that the bees are getting ready to look for a new place to live, he tries to find a way to communicate with the sister bees to convince them to stay. An author's note includes additional information about bees and bee conservation.

Lester L. Laminack is a specialist in children's literacy and professor emeritus at Western Carolina University. Laminack has written numerous books and articles for educators and is a familiar speaker at professional meetings and reading associations nationwide.

This is a Children's Book Week Spotlight Event.
