The Purcell Public Library will host “Behind the Story: Author Talk with Lana Harper, Back in a Spell” from 6-7 p.m. Thursday, February 9.

Join library staff for a magical evening with New York Times bestselling author Lana Harper as she discusses the third installment of her immensely popular The Witches of Thistle Grove series, Back in a Spell.

Back in a Spell follows Nineve Blackmoore and even though she won’t deny her love for pretty (and pricey) things, Nineve Blackmoore (known by Nina by most) is almost painfully down-to-earth and sensible by Blackmoore standards.

But after a year of nursing a broken heart inflicted by the fiancée who all but ditched her at the altar, the powerful witch is sick of feeling low and is ready to try something drastically different: a dating app.

At her best friend’s urging, Nina goes on a date with Morty Gutierrez, the nonbinary, offbeat soul of spontaneity and co-owner of the Shamrock Cauldron.

Their date goes about as well as can be expected of most online dates—awkward and terrible. To make matters worse, once Morty discovers Nina’s last name, he’s far from a fan; it turns out that the Blackmoores have been bullishly trying to buy the Shamrock out from under Morty and his family.

This is a virtual program and registration with an email address is required by calling 405-527-5546 or online at mcpioneerlibrarysystem.org.

This recipe is creamy, cheesy and easy!

Chili Mac

1 lb. ground beef

15.5-oz can chili beans

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1 onion, chopped

14.5-oz. can tomatoes, petite

8-oz. can tomato sauce

1-1/2 cups macaroni noodles, small

1.25-oz. packet chili seasoning

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

1/2 tsp. cumin

8 oz. Cheddar or colby jack cheese

1 cup milk

Season ground beef and onion with salt, pepper and garlic powder and brown in a large skillet (or pot) until meat is cooked through. Drain fat then return to skillet.

Add remaining ingredients except half of the cheese (reserving one cup for later). Stir well, cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cook, covered, for 15 minutes; stirring occasionally.

Turn off heat and let skillet rest, covered, on the burner for 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and noodles are tender.

Stir again then top with remaining shredded cheese to serve.
