Blue Bicycle Books, Charleston, SC

The Secret Life of Bees movie premiere

Thursday, Oct. 16. Terrace Theatre and Harbour Club.

Local author Sue Monk Kidd has graciously arranged for the Charleston premiere of the movie based on her hugely successful novel to benefit poetry workshops at Burke High School. Put on by the Lowcounty Initiative for the Literary Arts, who started Poets in the Schools at Burke. Tickets are $100. Reception to follow at the Harbour Club, 35 Prioleau St.

The first 200 tickets get admitted to the premiere, the next 200 will get a ticket to a later screening — but will head to the reception early.

(Many Blue Bike customers have admired the compilations of poetry from Burke High School students, For the People Who Deserve a Voice and Nine Times.) You can read a couple of the poems and get more info about this program here.

(As you may know I’ve covered a lot of these extensive theme parties during Spoleto for the City Paper, and this one is shaping up to be one for the ages. Bee-themed to the nines, signature drinks in mason jars — think Max Fischer’s cast party in Rushmore.)

Tickets available at Blue Bicycle Books, 420 King St.
