Local Cookbook Author Wade Leslie Meyer to Speak at Library

January 6, 2017 (Canton, Ohio) – Stark County District Library invites you to join local author Wade Leslie Meyer as he discusses his lighthearted cookbook on Thursday, January 19 at the Perry Sippo Branch from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.

This fun filled evening will include a discussion about his book featuring easy-to-make treats, tasty food samples and an opportunity to play Foodie Jeopardy! A book signing will follow the discussion, which is free and open to all.

What Shall I Bring? Your Personal Cookbook for Visiting Friends answers the question of what to bring when you’ve been invited to a party. Not only are the dishes unique and delicious, but they are also easy to prepare and appropriate for all skill levels.

“We’re excited to have Wade visit with us. He’s such a fun speaker and we enjoy showcasing local talent,” said Marianna DiGiacomo, Community Service Director. “Events like this are a great way to connect with the community. We call this “Sharing Smart” and it’s just one of the ways we serve Stark County as The Smart Store.”

Meyer is a retired high school mathematics teacher by trade. He has written articles for the Yahoo Contributor Network with a wide range of topics including baseball, muscle cars, and relationships. His next writing project, titled Horse Sense for Guys, is about relationships for men.

The event is free, but registration is requested due to limited seating. For more information about upcoming events and to register, visit StarkLibrary.org or call 330-447-8482. The Perry Sippo Branch is located at 5710 12th Street NW, Canton, OH 44708.
