On 31 August, UK author, Helen Jukes will be in conversation with Tessa Laird to discuss her memoir A honeybee heart has five openings

The author talk at Camberwell Library is part of the Melbourne Writers Festival and is the final event in the first annual Boroondara Literary Festival.

Helen will share how her year of beekeeping helped her break free from the office grind and how tending her hive made her see life from a new perspective.

Helen tutors creative writing at Oxford University and Tessa Laird is a noted art critic and author who has founded magazines and written several books. 

The Melbourne Writers Festival runs from 24 August to 2 September 2018 and features author talks and other literary events at locations throughout Melbourne.

We are excited to be included in the Melbourne Writers Festival 2018 Local Libraries program and invite your to join us for this special literary evening.
