Meredith May tickets available at:

Meredith was five when her parents split and she suddenly found herself in the care of her grandfather, an eccentric Big Sur beekeeper who made honey in an old military bus in the yard. As they bonded over the art of beekeeping, Meredith discovered that everything she needed to know about life and family was right before her eyes, in the secret world of bees. 

Part memoir, part beekeeping odyssey, this is a story about finding home in the most unusual of places, and how a tiny, little-understood insect could save a life.
