Erath Library                       Monday, July 19, 2021             6:00 pm

Timala (Timmie) Melancon is a spunky retired theatre teacher turned beekeeper. Like her character; Marigold, she is a hardworking curious dreamer. After retirement, she joined her husband, Lonnie, as a professional beekeeper. Her former students, now teachers, invited her to speak to their students about the most important insect, the honeybee. That was when the idea of writing an early reader book that used a compelling character (Marigold) to educate students about the important life of our hardest working pollinators became a goal. Mrs. Timmie believes that education is a life long journey. Marigold’s adventures will continue and readers will continue to learn through those adventures. Stop by and visit with Mrs. Timmie as she discusses her book and her bees.

Mrs. Timmie resides in Gueydan, Louisiana with her husband Lonnie. They are parents to four sons; Ben, Jeff, Rod and Zack.

Books will be available for purchase the night of the event.
