Near-Death Experience: An Overview Wednesday, June 8, 11:30a

Kelly : May 25, 2022 1:18 pm : Adult Events, Adult Events - Featured, Events

Millions of people worldwide nearly die or experience clinical death. Some individuals who nearly die, experience a profound spiritual experience while they are clinically dead, and return to tell fascinating stories that, some argue, provide glimpses of the afterlife. These experiences leave the experiencers, and those that study them, permanently changed.

In this virtual presentation, Dr. Amit Sinha, a non-experiencer and a Professor of Finance, in Foster College of Business at Bradley University provides an overview about these near-death experiences.

An Evening with Chef Kwame Onwuachi Wednesday, June 22, 7:00p

Kelly : May 25, 2022 1:00 pm : Adult Events, Adult Events - Featured, Events

Join us for an engaging evening with chef Kwame Onwuachi. His first cookbook, “My America: Recipes from a Young Black Chef” celebrates the cuisine of the African diaspora, “the world’s wisest food.” He’ll share the importance of the connections between cuisine, place, and culture.

Kwame Onwuachi is a James Beard Award-winning chef who was born on Long Island and raised in New York City, Nigeria, and Louisiana. Onwuachi was first exposed to cooking by his mother, in the family’s modest Bronx apartment, and he took that spark of passion and turned it into a career. He trained at the Culinary Institute of America and opened five restaurants before turning thirty. A former “Top Chef” contestant, he has been named “Food & Wine’s” Best New Chef 2019 and a 30 Under 30 honoree by both “Zagat” and “Forbes.” Onwuachi’s 2019 memoir, “Notes from a Young Black Chef” received critical acclaim.

This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present, a statewide collaboration among public libraries offering high-quality events. Funding for this grant was awarded by the Illinois State Library, a Department of the Office of Secretary of State, using funds provided by the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA).
