Orem Reads Keynote: Ally Condie
Oct 16, 2017, 7:00 pm
Join us for the Orem Reads finale and a visit from the renowned author of Summerlost, Ally Condie. Summerlost is a poignant exploration of family and tragedy, friendship and healing, all set against the backdrop of a small town’s theatre festival
Ally Condie is the author of the MATCHED Trilogy, a #1 New York Times and international bestseller. MATCHED was chosen as one of YALSA’s 2011 Teens’ Top Ten and named as one of Publisher’s Weekly’s Best Children’s Books of 2010. The sequels, CROSSED and REACHED, were also critically acclaimed and received starred reviews, and all three books are available in 30+ languages.
She is the founder of the non-profit WriteOut Foundation, which runs writeoutcamp.org–a writing camp for teens that allows students to work with published authors, experience the outdoors, and enjoy other activities (plays, costume balls, rock climbing, and more).
Ally lives with her husband and four children outside of Salt Lake City, Utah. She loves reading, writing, running, and listening to her husband play guitar. Follow Ally on Twitter and Facebook.
This event is made possible with support from Orem Public Library and Utah Humanities.
