Cheryl McCann, author of historical cookbook Stirring Up History: The Meals, Memoirs, and Memories of Our Ladies of Clay County, will visit Westport Library to discuss her journey as an author and researcher.

The book is a recreation of the 1880 and 1903 Economy Cook Books compiled by the Presbyterian Ladies of Liberty, MO. Unlike the original editions, it has some additional information: Biographies of the women behind the recipes. Cheryl McCann dove into the Clay County Archives to find details about these early American ladies, who were originally identified only by their husbands' names. The result is a magnificent, immersive adventure in old-fashioned cooking.

No RSVP is required for this event. Books will be available for purchase.

Get fit fast with America s #1 walking system! Leslie Sansone's 2 Mile Brisk Walk-30 Minutes
This is an extension of the Walk On 1 class. Participants will follow Leslie's DVD in a 2 mile walking workout that builds strength, endurance and flexibility, while boosting energy levels and super-charging your upper and lower body. This class is free and open to the public.

You can start on the road to better health with Stay Strong-Stay Healthy, an eight week strength training program offered by MU Extension. The evidence-based program is a series of simple, strength-building exercises that will improve balance, health and state of mind. It's not strenuous weight lifting, rather, everyone starts at a level that is right for them. No one is too inactive to participate. In fact, strength-building activities promote quality of life and independence, especially for adults over age 60.

More information on the class, starting October 30th, is available at the North East Public Library. (816) 701-3485.

In class you will learn basic English skills: grammar, listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading, and conversation. No fee or books required.

Contact Estelle at 816-560-0135 with questions.
