What can I say?  I have just been in Germany, visiting my 15-year-old granddaughter and her family, and she took this photograph of me at dinner.

Ha,ha, great stories!
I was reading the same NY times article this morning, however, I was interested in Garcia Marquez's assertion that "all he does is write." In the article there is a mentioning of whether the 'writing' changes with the author's age, which made me question whether authors get better with age or like in art, more, or less, complicated. One thing I know is that there are certain authors I wish would write forever, and some that, should have quit at the start (no names will be mentioned to protect the innocent...)

This is unrelated to your post, but I just happened upon your blog for the first time.
I read many of your books when I was younger, and I adored every one, particularly 'The Giver,' 'Gathering Blue,' and 'Number the Stars.'
Just wanted to say thanks for sharing your gift with the reading world!

Like most twenty-somethings, I foolishly consider death to be a metaphysical possibility and not a fact of life. Therefore I can't help but feel my heart sink a little bit every time someone I value mention the prospect of their own death. (Whether I know them in person or not) Ahh...the folly of youth.
On a different note, I'm eagerly waiting for the film adaptation of The Giver, slated to come out around the same time as your scheduled speech in Regina. It just wouldn't be right for me to watch it and for the author not to.
To make things simpler, I suggest you stick around for a while, Ms. Lowry.

Wow, I can't believe Scott O'Dell buttoned your dress for you in an elevator...then told an assembled crowd all about it years later! That is hysterical.
Gosh, you're so lucky you got to meet him, though. I'll never forget when I first read Island of the Blue Dolphins; I'm 36 now and I still reread it from time to time.
Actually, I once found a great book that he coauthored with Rhoda Kellogg called "The Psychology of Children's Art". It's a fantastic book with loads of examples of beautiful paintings and drawings done by children!

My class just completed your novel The Giver (along with Anthem and Animal Farm)...in a unit about Utopias...and dystopias.
I just have to share this post with them...these two encounters seem rather Utopiac (my word!) to me! How perfect!
Thanks for sharing!
