I have been away from this blog for a very, very long time; and now that I have returned, I find it overrun wiht "comments" that are actually Spam...so I have spent some time deleting all of that. My apologies to those who might have scrolled through and thought that I was recommending products...some of them porn-related...although actually I think most readers of blogs are savvy enough to know what's what (and what isn't).

Since I last posted here, an updated edition of my photographic memoir LOOKING BACK has been published, with twenty years of addiitonal material, including some stuff about the making of THE GIVER movie, plus tantalizing comments about the additon of a new and important person in my life (yes! Old Age Romance!).  And I've been travelling: Botswana, France, Germany...coming up: Cuba, and in the fall: northern Spain.

I have some interesting projects underway: one, a poem for an anthology; another a piece, non-poem, for a different anthology. I've written and published some introductions to other works, including for new editions of some of my own.  And I am always working on books.

I have recently written an essay called "A Story of Three Children" dealing with my concerns for refugees; I posted it on Facebook and Twitter, and find that many people are requesting a printable copy, which I will send to anyone who emails me and gives me their email address. (You can email me by...guess what! ...clicking on EMAIL ME on my website.) You have my permission to print and dsitribute "A Story of Three Children" if you share my concerns.

I have missed you, Lois. I thought the world had swallowed you up and, in a way, it did. Fantastic travels you've had and a new love? Woo Hoo. I've read the book "SON". It was part of the trilogy you wrote of "The Giver." What fourth book? What did I miss? I don't want to miss a book ever that you wrote. Please explain. Phyllis Searby; psearby17@gmail.com

SON was the fourth. GATHERING BLUE the second, MESSENGER the third.

Hello Lois! I just finished reading The Giver Quartet and loved every second of the series. I'm a mom of a 12 and 15 year old. I have encouraged both of them to read this wonderful series. I felt compelled to let you know how uncanny I found it that I didn't realize this was a series and had stopped after reading The Giver. I flew through the other 3 once I realized it. Given the circumstances of our country right now- it is so scary the correlations I found. More people need to read these as a cautionary tale. You have an amazing mind. Thank you for sharing these stories! ❤️

Yes, some of the correlations are quite startling...maybe prophetic. I hope the fact that the books are optimistic about the world, about the PEOPLE of this world, especially the young people...will prove prophetic as well.

Hi Lois! I'm just new here. I'm from the Philippines. I registered just to let you know my deepest appreciation of your The Giver Quartet. I bought the four books, and that was my first time to buy a series without any hesitation. I love all of them! :p:) I just finished reading "The Messenger" last night and up to now I can't move on from the sacrifice of Matty! :( I really adore how you write. You're amazing in your chosen craft!:) Have a good day! :)
