Daily staff reportnewsroom@vaildaily.comVail CO Colorado

VAIL – Young readers, ages 8-12, are invited to the town of Vail Public Library from 4 to 5 p.m. Thursday, for a visit with author Carolyn Cohagan. The first-time novelist will present a young writer’s workshop and include a reading from her book, “The Lost Children.” Cohagan is an actor and comedienne with a background in theater and film. Her presentation will be interactive, using props to incorporate theater exercises and games. Cohagan’s book debut is a juvenile novel published by Simon & Schuster. She is an advocate for literacy among young readers volunteering with the non-profit organization Reading to Kids. A native of Austin, Texas, Cohagan now lives in Los Angeles and will be vacationing in Colorado during the week of her Vail Library debut.”When we learned Carolyn was in town, we seized the opportunity to have her come and talk to the local children and guests who would like to meet an excellent new author and learn about the writing and publishing process,” says Lori Ann Barnes, librarian. “It is another opportunity for us to invite families into the library. We love summer for that reason; the children are out of school and using the library more. This one-hour long program will enhance their summer experiences.” The event is free.
