CLYDE - National speaker and author Patrick Hartory is to visit the Clyde Public Library to present a free brain health program at 6 p.m. Oct. 11. The program is designed to provide attendees with useful tips on ways to improve one's natural ability to remember names and details, discover the super "brain foods" that help slow mental aging and learn easy-to-do exercises that can help fight Alzheimer's disease.
The program is to conclude with Hartory signing copies of his new book, "Your Ageless Mind," which is to be available for purchase.
A national speaker and author, Hartory became interested in the power of the mind as a young student being challenged by his weekly spelling test. His father encouraged him to use memory systems to help improve his scores.
From those early experiences, Hartory developed an appreciation of how the mind works and was determined to learn more. Later, he would take that interest to Kent State University to earned degrees in psychology and business administration. After college, he went to work developing educational programming for the PBS television network and went on to produce and star in the long-running series, "Weird Science."
Today, Hartory continues to present more than 150 live programs and workshops each year, delivering his educational messages to audiences across the country.
His stories and articles have been featured in major publications, and he is the author of three books, including his latest release, "Your Ageless Mind."
No registration is needed for this free program.
