Bartlesville Public Library will host award-winning author, Phil Dixon, to talk about his book “Kansas City Monarchs in our Hometown,” which chronicles the history of the Kansas City Monarchs baseball team — the longest running franchise in the history of baseball’s Negro Leagues.
The free program is set for 1:30 p.m., Sunday, in the Library’s Meeting Room A. The library is located at 601 S. Johnstone Ave. in downtown Bartlesville.
Bartlesville is one of many stops Dixon will make on his tour to discuss the 1924 World Champion Monarchs and baseball history. He began a 90-city tour to honor the Monarchs— winners of a national title 90 years ago — but never imagined where it would take him, he says.

Join us for free weekly Tabata workout classes! What is Tabata? Tabata is a form of high intensity interval training that involves aerobics and strength training. Typical Tabata workouts involve doing various exercises very quickly for 20 seconds and then resting 10 seconds (usually repeating 8 times). Some typical exercises include push ups, burpees, high knees, squats, movements with kettle bells and much more.
It’s fast paced and fun, and has great results!
In our last cooking class, Mike Minnich taught us how to cook pork chops with reduction sauce. The results of his fine cooking was the sample of delicious pork chops with a cranberry reduction and an orange reduction sauce.
Chef Mike gave us some very good cooking instructions, including the surprising use of pans that are not coated with a non-stick coating. Not only did Chef Mike give us these instructions, he also showed us a technique that would make the cleaning of our skillet much easier.
On April 4th, at noon at the Bartlesville Public Library, Chef Mike will return to teach us some new ways to cook cauliflower. Chef Mike believes that cauliflower is one of the most underrated vegetables there are.
Come join us at noon on Wednesday, April 4th at the Bartlesville Public Library and discover new ways to appreciate cauliflower!
