Lois Lowry's Blog
from a blog reader:
In two weeks we will be discussing The Giver in my book club...at 59 I am their junior member, and many are approaching 80...one is 92. I am excited to lead this discussion...it will be the third level of readers I have talked about it to.
Any special words of wisdom, or insight you may want to pass on to these wonderful, wise women?
What an opportunity..as book discussions always are...to reminisce, to recall ways in which one's life was touched by issues raised in a book. Quite simply, I think women of that age might recall compromises they have made in their own lives, for the sake of comfort and safety...choices they may now regret (or not).
I look forward to hearing how it goes!
