Book Signing “Virginia Honey: A Sweet History”

August 28 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Local Author Virginia C. Johnson will be signing copies of her new book.​

Honeybees have been a part of Virginia’s history since they arrived with the first European colonists. They were Jamestown’s valuable addition and a Civil War soldier’s sweet if painful temptation, and they served as homefront heroes when the world wars caused sugar shortages. In recent years, mead has seen a resurgence along with beekeeping and has claimed a place as a craft beverage in the Commonwealth. Join author Virginia Johnson to hunt escaped swarms flying wild in the forests, visit modern-day observation hives and follow the mead path across the Commonwealth for a taste of history.
