Special Guest Speaker is Tammy Horn who was an English professor for ten years until, as 2006 NEH Chair of Appalachian Studies, she began to study the potential impact of surface mining on honey bees.  In 2007, unemployed, she began writing grants and working with coal companies to create Coal Country Beeworks.  In 2013, she is now working the third book of the *bee trilogy*: Bees in America: How the Honey Bee Shaped a Nation (2005); Beeconomy (2012); and Apiforestation, The Future of Beekeeping (forthcoming).  She will be speaking two times.  The first session will be "Honey Corridors in the Appalachians" and the second session will be "Beeconomy: What Women and Bees teach us about local trade and global markets".
