Meet author Sheila Whitlock

Meet Sheila Whitlock, the author of The Shulamite at the Stryker Branch Library on Monday, November 16th from 6:00 to 7:00 pm. 
 
Sheila Whitlock first moved to Northwest Ohio to attend Defiance College, and has been a resident of Stryker since 1977. While working in the healthcare profession, Sheila would often come across the question, “How do I find my purpose?” In response, The Shulamite was written. The book will guide you through The Song of Songs, penned by King Solomon of the biblical Old Testament. As a graduate seminary student, the author uses the Hebrew language of the text to assist the reader in the study of the Song of Songs. Following the principles outlined, it will help the reader realize their purpose and calling. The author takes the reader through the journey of the Shulamite bride to reveal how she reunites with her bridegroom.

Magician/Comedian Jim Barron Set to Appear

There are magicians who amaze and comedians who make you laugh but few combine the two art forms like magician/comedian Jim Barron who will bring his unique show to the Stryker Public Library on Wednesday, October 21st from 3:15-4:00 p.m.  Barron became interested in magic at the age of 10 and, while in the 5th and 6th grades, often performed magic shows for classmates at Hamilton Elementary in Hamilton Indiana.  “There weren’t as many outlets for learning magic back then as there are today so I read and re-read every book on magic in the school library. After I’d read all those, I visited the library in Edon, Ohio which was just across the state line from my home in Alvarado and read all theirs too,” said Barron.
 
     Today, Jim Barron performs for corporate events, festivals, fundraisers and even schools. Following his show, it’s not unusual to hear comments like, “I haven’t had that much fun in a long time” and “I’ve seen magic acts before but they never made me laugh like this!  This show is really unique!”
