Welcome to Chillicothe, Missouri

Cultural Corner welcomed David Cook - author and illustrator of Nort's Stories - for a book signing November 18. Cook was born and raised in Chillicothe, MO. He is the son of the late John Cook and Barbara Cook. Cook's love for writing and illustrating began as a young child and developed into a series of faith-based stories featuring his signature character Nort. Cook was at the Cultural Corner for the book signing from 1 until 3 p.m. featuring his recent book Nort's Stories (children entered the world of Nort & Anne as they teach their two sons, Sebastian and Fredrick, what it truly means to bring glory to God in everything they do). At 2 p.m., "Nort's Christmas Story" was told while being illustrated. While decorating the Christmas tree, Nort told the children a story.
