EAS is lucky this year to have attending several authors who have recently published books on the beekeeping trade. These authors will be available on a schedule to meet and greet and if you are so inclined, sign copies of their books that you have purchased from any of the many vendors that will be there, or your own copy you have brought with you.
Authors include Dr. Diana Sammataro and Al Avitabile, The Beekeeper’s Handbook, 4th Edition; Marina Marchese, HONEYBEE Lessons form an Accidental Beekeeper; Cindy Bee, Removing Bees; Kim Flottum, Better Beekeeping; Loree Griffen Burns, The Hive Detectives; and Bill Turnbull (UK’s best known TV Morning Show Host, and beekeeper), The Bad Beekeeper’s Club (Bill is also our Banquet speaker…a program you DO NOT want to miss!). Also from the UK, Claire Waring, editor of Bee Craft, along with her husband Adrian, Haynes Bee Manual. Showing up too will be John Miller, Commercial beekeeper from North Dakota and California, producer of Honey Stinger, a popular health and energy bar product, and the subject of Beekeeper’s Lament, by Hanna Nordhaus to share his side of that story. Also present will be Bill O’Malley, Wisdom Of The Bees. What the hive can teach business about leadership, leadership, efficiency and growth.
So if you already have any of these great books, or are thinking of picking one up, come around to the signing table on Thursday or Friday and have your copy signed by the author, and stop and chat…we’re all beekeepers, and we all have a story to tell. Some are funny, some are unique, some are great how-to, some are fascinating, and some are entirely new. Get your signed copy today…only at EAS 2011.
