Carrie Hagen

Author to discuss true Philadelphia crime story

Author Carrie Hagen will visit Penn State Abington on Feb. 1 to discuss and sign copies of her first book, "We Is Got Him: The Kidnapping That Changed America." Hagen's fast-paced, critically acclaimed book recounts the true story of the 1874 abduction of young Charley Ross from his family's yard in Philadelphia. It was the first recorded kidnapping for ransom in the nation, and it plunged the city and much of the country into hysteria.
