Author Visit

In case you haven’t heard (come out from that cave), let me use this platform to shout, “Tracy Korn is coming to YOUR Bremen Public Library!” 

Who is Tracy Korn? I’m delighted you asked.

In addition to 17 years of teaching high school English (no small feat), Tracy has authored the popular young adult Elements series. Years of experience in the classroom convinced her that teenagers are superheroes. Their resiliency, drive, and passion about making the world a better place were the inspiration in putting forth tales that are character driven and gripping with adventure.

Mrs. Korn will be joining us for a book talk during Teen Read Week in October. Libraries across the world celebrate TRW with a variety of special events and programs aimed at encouraging young people to embrace the joys of reading. Did you know research shows that teens who read for fun have better test scores and are more likely to succeed in the workforce? My goal in serving the Bremen community is to encourage residents to be regular readers and library users.

This year’s TRW theme is “Unleash Your Story.” I hope all of you will join me during this time to tell your own life story and share in the stories of others. Let us welcome Tracy Korn to our community and hearing hers.

AQUA: Elements Series - Book One

Being afraid of failure is normal, but no one fears success except eighteen-year-old Jazwyn Ripley, who has worked her entire life for a chance to become more than the scant apprenticeships in the Seaboard North stacks can offer. It's all too clear that at the bottom, there's nowhere to go but down. Only the best can begin career training at Gaia Sur, the elite academy on the ocean floor, but when Jazz begins receiving cryptic messages from past Gaia cadets originating from within the earth's core, she and her friends discover that the road to everything they've ever wanted now leads somewhere they never intended to go.

TERRA: Elements Series – Book Two

Getting out of Gaia Sur was almost as hard as getting in, but there's no going back now. Jazwyn Ripley and her friends have no choice but to venture into the caves and tunnels underneath the ocean floor as the messages they've been receiving get stronger. Tensions rise and loyalties are tested when another of their crew is captured along the way, and one critical choice means following unlikely allies down a path most would never dare – across the seven biomes of "The Rush" – which, if they survive, will either lead to freedom or imprison them forever.

AER: Elements Series – Book Three

Coming Soon!
