Michele Young-Stone

Michele’s new novel, Lost in the Beehivehas a lot of buzz! That’s a little bee humor for ya. It was featured in O! Magazine last month and Patricia Smith–acclaimed author of The Year of Needy Girls, co-organizer of the RVA Lit Crawl and, most importantly, previous P&C guest–calls it “a heartbreaking, life-affirming novel that champions the radical notion that to embrace our truest self is the one thing we can do to save ourselves. These characters and their lives and this beautiful story remained in my mind long after I finished reading.”

Lost in the Beehive is a coming of age story with magical fantasy elements. It’s about life and love and growing up gay in the 60s and BEES!

Michele was a delightful guest. She reads from Catcher in the Rye, as well as from her book. We talk about bildungsromans and the joys of growing pains! She is also the author of Above Us Only Sky (2016) and The Handbook for Lightning Strike Survivors: A Novel (2010). She is welcome back anytime.
