Jeffrey Beam 

When: Sun., June 30, 3-4:30 p.m. 2013
Price: $10

When school lets out, I slow down because I suddenly have a kid at my elbow. We learned about wildflowers yesterday and petted bumblebees rummaging the blooms of purple coneflowers. Poet Jeffrey Beam reminds us that loving bees is important—they're responsible for pollinating every third bite of food we eat. Focusing on bees and pollination, Beam reads from his work "Bee, I'm Expecting You" as well as poems from ancient Egypt, Sylvia Plath, Virgil, Pablo Neruda and others at the North Carolina Botanical Garden. He'll also share bee folklore and some of his art-song cycle collaboration with Lee Hoiby. —Chris Vitiello
