Enjoy an evening with young adult fantasy authors Lorie Langdon and Carey Corp, cowriters of the popular time travel fantasy series "Doon." Register online, in person, or by phone at 330.784.2019.

Lorie Langdon is one half of the author team that writes the best-selling DOON series, a young adult reimagining of the musical Brigadoon. A few years ago, she left her corporate career to satisfy the voices in her head. Now she spends her days tucked into her office, a Havanese puppy by her side, working to translate her effusive imagination into the written word.

Lorie has been interviewed on Entertainment Weekly.com and several NPR radio programs, including Lisa Loeb’s national Kid Lit show. The DOON series has been featured on such high-profile sites as USAToday.com, Hypable.com, and BroadwayWorld.com. Lorie’s solo debut, GILT HOLLOW, a YA romantic thriller, was released in 2016. GILT HOLLOW was named by Redbook Magazine as one of the “Books By Women You Must Read This Fall.”

NY Times and USA Today Best-selling author, Carey Corp wrote her first book, a brilliant retelling of Star Wars, at the prodigious age of seven. Since then, her love affair of reinvention has continued to run amuck. Writing both stories for young adults and literary fiction, she begins each morning consuming copious amounts of coffee while weaving stories that capture her exhaustive imagination. She harbors a voracious passion (in no consistent order) for mohawks, Italy, musical theater, chocolate, and Jane Austen. Her debut novel for teens, THE HALO CHRONICLES: THE GUARDIAN, earned her national recognition as a Golden Heart finalist for best young adult fiction and put her on the NY Times and USA Today best-sellers lists.



Read Lorie Langdon and Carey Corp's novels before their visit. Titles available at the Akron-Summit County Public Library include:
