Dogknitting


Well, perhaps it is because the weather has turned VERY COLD...down in the single digits...that Alfie felt compelled to take up knitting. Here is a partially-done (by me) sweater that—when my back was turned—he decided to work on. Thanks a lot, helpful puppy. (Okay, so it did look like a stick).

And here are two other photos.

Four summers ago I hired Jesse, then 14, to be a model for me, and his is the photograph on the cover of my book MESSENGER. And here is Jesse now(click photo to enlarge), four years later. He has just embarked on a trip that will take him six months: 300 miles on cross-country skis, then 200 miles by river in a handmade canoe, with hand-caved paddles, living off the land and using wilderness survival skills. Jesse is a remarkable young man whose dedication to preservation of the natural world is genuine and admirable.

I've been notified that my stage adaptation of "Gossamer" is one of three plays accepted for the NYU/Provincetown Players festival/workshop in June. That means that I'll be in New York in June working hard with a director, dramaturg, set designer, lighting designer, and actors, getting it into the final and best possible shape for actual production in the fall. This venture into theater has been—and is—exhilirating for me, and humbling as well, with the realization that the words, the sentences, are only a very small part of the whole.

Martin just came into my office to show me an article in this month's Smithsonian: "28 Places to See Before You Die" is the title. Leafing through quickly, I count 12 that I have seen...not a bad sum, I guess, and perhaps more than most people. But still a lot left! The one I yearn to see, still...and fear I won't...is Easter Island (or Rapa Nui, as we afficionados call it). I can't get anyone interested in going there with me. "That far to see a few toppled stone heads? Don't think so" is the usual reaction. But for some reason I find those massive stone heads and their murky history very haunting.

Of course I could go by myself. A few years ago I went to Sumatra by myself, just for the heck of it. And there is something to be said for being alone in a place. You notice more. You pay attention. You're not distracted by conversation.

Here is a Sumatran woman, just outside of Bukkitingi, the town in central Sumatra where I stayed in a small hotel for a week in 1996. The thing I most remember about that culture is this: that it is the only matrilineal culture in the world. Only women inherit and own property; men take their wives' names when they marry. And it is a very peaceful culture.

She looks, unsurprisingly, a little suspicious of me. But the people were friendly and kind, as a rule. I'll add one more photo, a cheerful boy. Hah. Wait till he grows up and finds out that his wife owns everything.

I read Number the Stars for the first time as an education student fifteen years ago and fell in love with it. After reading these excerpts I will have to reread the book. I think it will be even more powerful. Thank you for sharing this.

Just finished the Willoughby's; schlufted ischt.
We've never met, but you feel like a friend having given selfless hours of comfort and entertainment. Thank you.

Thank you for sharing those beautiful letters.
I have posted a link to them on my children's literature site and will tell my teacher pals. They are, indeed, very important to understanding the human element in such a large historical tragedy.

Kim Malthe-Bruun's letters are very moving, especially the last one about his sentence. It takes quite a man to tell the girl he loves that it is okay to marry someone else. He must have reached inside of himself to accept his faith and put himself in Halle's shoes. In his darkest hour, he is thinking about her and her future. Wow! We can only strive in life for such humbleness.
Thank you for this post.

Have you ever considered writing another historical story?
When a child can relate to a character, they usually become more interested in that part of history.
I think you'd do well. You did great with "Number the Stars."

Yvonne,
another very informative historical book by Lois Lowry is "The Silent Boy". She has helped me to understand through it some interesting topics of the early 1900's, such as the advancing of medicine. It also includes a sad but timeless lesson, told from a rare perspective.

WOW!!! Your books are to die for!!! Keep on writing or else I will be very very bored in the after- noons!!!
P.S. I am so happy that you reply to my e-mails!!!

Mrs. Lowry,
My 4th grade students just finished the book. One of the questions they had yesterday was whether or not Georg Duckwitz has flowers on his grave? I suspect he was interred after his death in 1973 in Bremen.

Mrs Lowry,
Today in 6th grade we just finished your book. I think it was an AMAZING novel. My great-granfather was in World War 2, in Denmark,Copenhagen. I am so very sorry for the loss of Kim Malthe-Bruun, but atleast we know that he was saving our world from what i think is a HORRIBLE thing. I hope that one day i get to see and talk to these people who were put through all this.
Yours Truely,
Jenna Boyett<3

Mrs. Lowry,
I am using your book for a grad school teacher/student reading response journal in which the teacher and the student communicate back and forth about your book. This is the first time I've ever participated in such an exercise. The media specialist at our local Orlando, FL library helped to me locate your book and several other books of historic fiction. Oh, I'm getting my masters in reading education. What did you learn about yourself after writing the book? Thanks, Dorcas Orlando, FL
