Korey Loughry of Kent will be at the Dover Public Library on Thursday, Jan. 25 at 6:30 p.m. to tell of his survival of multiple sudden cardiac arrests following an unexpected heart attack. Loughry will share his recollections of SCA and his long recovery in his book, “I Was Arrested: A Candid Memoir of One Cardiac Arrest Survivor.” A book-signing will follow the program.

Joining Loughry will be Kari Klaserner, coordinator of outpatient cardiovascular and pulmonary rehabilitation at Cleveland Clinic Union Hospital, who will share facts about cardiac arrest, nutrition and prevention, and resources that are offered locally.

“Korey is grateful that he has been given a second chance at life,” said Sherrel Rieger, adult programming specialist. “He feels, and I agree, that others will benefit from hearing his story.”

Loughry is a husband and father of two adult children. He has become a spokesperson for the concerns of cardiovascular disease and sudden cardiac arrest. He hopes to encourage as many people as he can to understand and value both their physical and mental health.

This program will be held in the community room at the DPL, 525 N. Walnut St., Dover. Register online at or call the library at 330-343-6123.
