    “The Pollinators” is a cinematic journey around the United States following migratory beekeepers and their truckloads of honey bees as they pollinate the flowers that become the fruits, nuts and vegetables we all eat. They talk to farmers, scientists, chefs and academics along the way to give a broad perspective about the threats to honey bees, what it means to our food security and how we can improve it.

    Carter Center’s Cecil B. Day Chapel

    Tickets available at AcappellaBooks

    Mo Rocca has always loved obituaries—reading about the remarkable lives of world leaders, captains of industry, innovators and artists. But not every notable life has gotten the send-off it deserves. With “Mobituaries”, the journalist, humorist, and history buff is righting that wrong, profiling the people who have long fascinated him—from the 20th century’s greatest entertainer…to sitcom characters gone all too soon…to a shamefully forgotten Founding Father.

    This is the masterful true-crime account of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing that captured the world’s attention, and the heroic security guard-turned-suspect at the heart of it all.
