The Moore Public Library will welcome Kerry Cohen, author of several young adult and teen books, to the library at 6 p.m. Jan. 5, 2012, for a book discussion and signing. The program is offered for teens.

Cohen is frank and honest about relationships, seeking love and learning from life’s messy situations. Her writing is described as “delving inside a subject and pulling up all the hidden pieces.”

Cohen’s books include: “The Good Girl,” “Easy,” “It’s Me Not You,” “Seeing Ezra,” “Loose Girl,” and “Dirty Little Secrets.”

“Kerry Cohen’s young adult books are powerful. Her memoir is a frank account of discovering your true nature and changing your actions to renew your choices in life … it is so compelling and well-written,” said Leanne Cheek, teen librarian for the Moore Public Library. “Teens who love strong books will enjoy meeting Kerry Cohen; her storylines are as original as she is. You simply cannot put her books down once you read the very first page.”

Cohen has a master’s degree in creative writing from the University of Oregon, and is on the faculty at Oklahoma City University teaching in the Red Earth low-residency program.

She has made appearances to talk about her writing throughout the country, and also appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America!” show earlier this year.

Teens are asked to register to attend the program and may do so at the Information Desk of the library, by calling 793-4349 or online at
