Here is a very happy graduate, my older daughter with her Master's Degree from Boston University, awarded last night.

We've had a lot of graduations in my family...all famliies do..and among my kids are a law degree and one other master's degree...but it never becomes old hat, and I still choke up - in a good way, a sentimental way - when they start marching in wearing caps and gowns.

And tonight I attended a fundraising event hosted by my friend Alice Hoffman, a breast cancer survivor who has for some years heroically and efficiently and magnificently raised money for the Hoffman Breast Center at Mouth Auburn Hospital in Cambridge, where I live. Alice knows so many writers and for each event has had a group of them come to read and speak; tonight were Ann Hood, Jodi Picoult, Susan Orlean, Gregory Maguire, Robert Parker, and Jacqueline Mitchard. Lovely food and wine and a thoroughly entertaining event at which a lot of $$$$ was raised which will save some lives.

My own sister died of breast cancer when she was 29 years old. So it is a cause that means a lot to me, as it does to so many others.

I remember jumping in piles of leaves. Probably because of that fun, and the fascination of watching the leaves burn, autumn has remained my favorite season.
Is the rustle of fallen leaves one of your favorite sounds?

Hi Lowry!
My name is Kamal. This is my first time to writ to a great person. I had been given some question about your book “The Giver”, and some of those questions are what the most thing that impressed me about your life, and if I would like to meet you. I’ve read some biographies about you, and really I was astonished about your life; you lived most your life traveling with your family and most of your kin are armies. but this book the Giver is the peaceful place where people can dream about, did you want to have this world empty from the bad memories or did you want to build this place for your own to hide your pain and sadness? I really enjoyed your book, and I hope you can read my message. Take care of your self and your grandchildren. They are your life and family. Thank you for your ideas and “The giver”. I know I mixed my words like Asher because I am a new learner to this language.
Thank you
