Highland County Press columnist Christine Tailer has published her first book, “Sixty Thousand Sisters: Daughters of the Queen." She will appear at the Hillsboro Public Library on Wednesday May 20 to share these stories about honey bees and her life with her husband on their farm on Straight Creek near Georgetown.
Christine Tailer was born and raised in New York City, but moved to Ohio to attend college. She graduated from Kenyon College in 1976, majoring in both anthropology and psychology, and then followed up at the University of Cincinnati, where she received her Masters in Anthropology, and later, in 1984, a law degree. She retired as a fulltime insurance defense litigator in Cincinnati, as the last of her four children "left the urban nest" that she and her husband had created in a fully renovated one hundred year old home in the heart of the city.
They now live on an off-grid farm in Brown County, Ohio, where Christine now practices law part time, raises honey bees, goats, meat rabbits, and chickens, tends a large chemical free garden, and enjoys learning about the area's wild edibles, which includes tapping the farm's many maple trees.
Christine also finds time to write a weekly column in the Highland County Press. The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome to join us!
