JOLIET – Children of the Warren Sharpe Community Center will be signing autographs Monday night at Heroes West in Joliet to celebrate the launch of a new cookbook inspired by the creation of the youth center’s urban garden.

Ten percent of all purchases made at Heroes West that night will be donated to the center, according to a news release. All book proceeds support the youth and ever-growing garden projects.

Kay Bolden and the children recently wrote a book – “Veggie Casserole: Kids Cook the Darndest Things!” – that commemorates the children’s visit last year to the White House in Washington, D.C.

The book launch event will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Monday at the Heroes West Sports Grill, 1530 Commerce Lane in Joliet.

“Veggie Casserole: Kids Cook the Darndest Things!” is a story about “what they learned about gardening and cooking, about reclaiming their community, and about building the future,” according to a book description online.

The book is available now at www.VeggieCasserole.org.
