3rd Annual Women's Expo this Saturday

Susie Blackmore - FCPL Marketing & Art Manager

The staff at Frankfort Community Public Library and especially Hubbard Center for Lifelong Learning Coordinator Jamie Anderson have been diligently preparing for the 3rd Annual Women’s Expo at the Library. The Expo is this Saturday, March 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the 2nd floor of the Frankfort Library. All are welcome at this free event – men, women and children.

“I wanted The Expo to be a venue to inspire and empower women,” event coordinator Jamie Anderson said. “But The Expo isn’t just for women. I made a point to book inclusive speakers that appeal to a diverse crowd, so that everyone can take away something from the experience.”

Author and Tipton resident Janis Thornton will speak at 10 a.m. in the Skanta Theatre about her book, “Too Good a Girl: Remembering Olene Emberton and the Mystery of Her Death.” Joining Janis is former Howard County Sheriff Marty Talbert, who reopened this case in the 1990s.

Saturday afternoon forgiveness advocate and Holocaust survivor Eva Kor will speak at 1 p.m. in the Skanta Theatre. Tickets are free and will be passed out at noon at the library. You won’t want to miss this moving and inspiring presentation by a very special woman. Signed copies of Eva’s book, “Surviving the Angel of Death: The Story of a Mengele Twin in Auschwitz” will be available for purchase. Eva’s presentation is recommended for ages 10 and above, but please use your own discretion.

Entrepreneur Rosa Gaeta Cornejo will speak at 3 p.m. in the Skanta Theatre. Her presentation will be given in Spanish and translated into English. Rosa came to the United States from Mexico as an adult. She learned English and opened a small bakery as a single mother. She is now the owner of four popular bakeries in Indiana by the name of Mamá Inés Mexican Bakery. Rosa is a living example of the American Dream and we are excited for her to share her story at The Expo.

If you have any questions concerning the Women’s Expo, please stop by the library or call 654-8746 and ask for Jamie.
