Portage Library to host local author Corey LaBissoniere

HOUGHTON -- The Portage Lake District Library invites everyone to an evening of readings and imaginative discussion with local author Corey LaBissoniere from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 26.

LaBissoniere will discuss his novel that takes young adults into the mysterious underworld known as the Land of Enchantas. Land of Enchantas tells the tale of four teenagers who, after a chain of collisions and mishaps, embark on a forced journey into the remarkable underworld beneath their small town. In the depths of an old mine they discover talking animals, screaming vegetables, evil sorcerers, and other mythical creatures. In order to find their way home, the teens must fulfill an ancient prophecy and restore peace to the Land of Enchantas.

LaBissoniere has been writing since he was a child, and this is his first published book. He works as an adoption specialist in Houghton and enjoys extreme sports, outdoor activities, and travel. He is a member of the Upper Peninsula Authors and Publishers Association.

There will be a book signing and selling after the presentation.

Library programs are free and everyone is welcome. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570 or visit
