Fiction, Film and Fun: The Secret Life of Bees

Thursday, February 16, 2012  
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Join CCAC's Jeanne Bergad to discuss The Secret Life of Bees, by Sue Monk Kidd. Set in South Carolina in the 1960’s, this novel follows the path of Lily Owens, a 14 year old girl who lost her mother at a young age and has a difficult relationship with her father. When Lily’s sole ally, her housekeeper Rosaleen, has an altercation with some local racists, the two escape to a bee farm run by the benevolent Boatwright sisters. The 2008 film starred Dakota Fanning as Lily, Jennifer Hudson as Rosaleen, and Queen Latifah, Alicia Keys, and Sophie Okonedo as the Boatwright sisters.
