2016 Flint Hills Senior Life Fair has Esther Luttrell as keynote speaker

The Flint Hills Senior Life Fair moved to the Anderson Building for the first time in its history, and the event from earlier today was very informational for senior citizens.



There were booths set up that gave senior citizens more information about staying in shape, signing up for better insurance coverage, and potential funeral services down the road.


Attorney Chris Ambrose had an educational session from 9:15 to 10:15 AM about proactive planning.


David Crotts and Barb Rourk followed up Ambrose with an education session about the importance of fitness and physical activity for seniors.


The keynote speaker was Esther Luttrell, a former Hollywood screenwriter who now writes murder mysteries, inspirational novels, and even children's books. Lutrell's keynote address was under the subject matter entitled "Happy on Purpose."


Luttrell did not become a published writer until she was 64 years old. Her husband left her at that age, and he left her with only $1 in her entire bank account.


This led to a climax in Luttrell's life, where she eventually wrote the book Murder in the Movies.

As for her Hollywood career, Luttrell's big break in Hollywood came for her simply asking herself, "What type of job would make me the happiest in the world?"
