We are going three miles down the road to Bee Cave Texas. We are visiting Bee Cave’s first-ever book festival, Books & Bees. As a hub of literacy for children and adults, the Bee Cave Public Library hosts programs year-round that serve hundreds of families in the area and beyond. The City of Bee Cave is dedicated to educating the public and helping conserve this most important insect. The one-of-a-kind Books & Bees Festival will help Bee Cave accomplish two missions – share fantastic literature with kids and adults alike, featuring high-profile, bestselling authors – and teach residents and their kiddos more about bees. We are catered by Josephine House of Austin. Our entertainment is Roy Orbison.

The welcome tent.
Where you can get a bee finger puppet. (They wouldn’t let me have one.)
A lot of folks around that tent.
No wonder. It’s where headbands can be made.
Here is author Laekan Zea Kemp talking about her book.
There are author panels too. Here Eric Pohl takes a question
And for the bees nice flower seeds to be planted
