Westlake community center caters to variety of interests
The Westlake Center for Senior and Community Services is many things to a variety of people. For some, it may serve as a beacon for culture and literature. From engrossing stories of often overlooked historical people and events to some of the most famous storytellers who ever lived, the center offers plenty of enriching content. Below are just a couple examples:
Page Turners – The Best of the Best
March 10, 10 a.m. Free. RSVP by March 5
They’re the best of the best – the classic writers of mystery’s golden age – Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, Rex Stout, Margery Allingham, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Phoebe Atwood Taylor and the characters they created, from meticulous Hercule Poirot to suave Lord Peter Wimsey and crusty Nero Wolfe. These popular British and American authors of the early to mid-20th century have stood the test of time and their mysteries still thrill and entertain us and have influenced many writers publishing today. Light refreshments from mystery cookbooks or mystery authors will be served.
Interesting Person – “Unsung Heroes”
Friday, March 13, 1 p.m. Free. RSVP by March 11
The Community Services Center will be screening “Unsung Heroes.” The one-hour, 45-minute film details how, from the Revolutionary War until today, women have shed their blood in defense of America. Their sacrifices are profound and their noble accomplishments largely ignored. This inspiring story of perseverance and triumph, dramatically and for all time, sets the record straight on their unrecognized courage and sacrifices. At the heart of "Unsung Heroes" are the powerful first-hand accounts of women who have answered the call and stand proud in their commitment to the patriotic ideals of the United States.
