So the good readers at Mineral County Public Library in Superior, Montana had a real Beekeeper’s Ball. They read the book and then had a picnic featuring the menu of recipes from the book. OMG, I am over the moon! Every writer dreams of a group of readers, sharing food and stories and laughter on a beautiful summer’s day. Please enjoy these shots of their own private Beekeeper’s Ball. 

A perfect setting. Could be the cover of one of my books.

Tables were set up around the hostess's yard. If there is a more gorgeous place than Montana, I've yet to see it.
