Events and readings, Listening to the Bees

May 11: Listening to the Bees – Surrey Book Launch

Listening to the Bees Book Launch Surrey

If you can’t make it to the Vancouver launch for Listening to the Bees, my latest collaboration with Mark Winston, we’ll also be launching the book at the Surrey City Centre Library on May 11!

“Listening to the Bees is a collaboration between two writers who share a common passion for bees and for language. It combines Winston’s personal essays based on thirty years as a scientist in the field with the honey bee and Saklikar’s poems created in response to a rich scientific archive.”
