Peggy Hesketh in conversation with Gordon McAlpine

Peggy Hesketh: Telling the Bees

Peggy Hesketh's short story "A Madness of Two" was selected by Elizabeth George for inclusion in her anthology Two of the Deadliest. A long-time journalist, Peggy teaches writing and rhetoric at the University of California, Irvine. Telling the Bees is her first novel. Spanning the arc of the twentieth century, set in the transforming landscape of Southern California, Telling the Bees is a beautifully imagined novel about the far-reaching consequences of words left unspoken, the persistence of regret, and the power of truth both to wound and to heal.

Ms. Hesketh will be interviewed by author Gordon McAlpine, whose most recent novel Hammett Unwritten is receiving high marks here and abroad.
