Pandeme of Bees - Book Launch | Desert Festival 2020

  • Fri 2nd Oct 2020, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
  • 67 Bath St, Alice Springs NT 0870

'Pandeme' is a composite of Greek words Pan and Deme meaning ‘All encompassing possession of flowers and bees in one place,'.


Join us for the launch of 'Pandeme of Bees' by SezzaJai. A collection of mellifluous, sensual bee poetry that is cryptic, abstract, hidden, opening, lascivious. The themes of the book interweave to create a word meadow to feed, entice, seduce and seed love for the bee and the hive.


SezzaJai is a word smith, bee keeper and mystery navigator. She has translated an epistemology of bee behavior into human emotion. Her deep understanding of scientific apian research has been word forged into the rhyme and rhythm of beauty and inner knowing of bees. She has helped tend Bees in England, France, New Zealand and Australia, which includes helping on commercial Bee farms as well as bee- centric gardens that inform local bee keeping practices.
