I have just spent twenty minutes deleting a few of the hundreds of blog comments that are posted to his blog by trolls or spammers or ahetever they are called. It is so frustrating and there seems no way to block them.

So I hope you'll bear with me and ignore, if you can, the menaingless and annoying comments...they seem to reappear as fast as I hit DELETE.

 

It is a gorgeous fall day in Maine and on Monday Howard and I will head off by car to Quebec, where we'll spend the follwing few days exploriing and walking and, oh dear, probably eating too much.

I am taking a lot of work with me in my head, though not on my computer, which will remain at home.  Currently I am putting together something that I hope will eventually be a collaboration with a very fine illustrator (remaining nameless at the moment), and also the beginnings of a play which will be a collaboration with a for-now nameless theater director, as well as a ...enough. I'm not going to talk about any of the rest of it. But my brain is very busy.

Irma slammed into our place in Naples, Florida and did some damage but nothing that can't be fixed. We were luckier than so many people. I think of the house I once rented with friends on the island of St. John...it is likely gone. So much is gone, so many people in such distress. And yet human resliance is quite amazing, as is the human capacity for helping one another.

A granddaughter has begun graduate shool this fall. A grandson has begun college. Another grandson has just today climbed Mt. Washington with his wife. And yet one more grandson has started his junior year in high school. Me, I have started my ninth decade! Is that right? Having just turned 80? I'm no good at figuring out those things. My days for mountain climbing are past. But my zest for life remains and my brain is intact so far, and I still weep at the state of the world and laugh at my dog's tail-wag and marvel at the power of words to affect our lives.

Let us carry on!  Trolls or not. Ignore the comments!

Hello Ms. Lowry,
I'm doing my research in preparation for writing the press release for your upcoming visit to the University at Albany. There's lots of buzz for your visit and we're expecting a nice, big crowd.
I'm sorry to see your blog comments are overrun with spam. Ugh. Let's talk when you're in town. I have some ideas that could be helpful and make your blog more spam-free.
Looking forward to meeting you! Mike Huber, University at Albany.

Ms. Lowry, I'm a 6th grade teacher at a small Catholic school in Chicago. When I first started teaching that grade, I was looking for a novel for my students to read. I came across a set of The Giver books in our library and fell in love with the story. My students read your book as part of a novel study and I have NEVER had a student say they didn't like it. If a student sees another student reading the book before we study it, they tell that student to stop. Siblings hide their copy at home and keep it safe for when their siblings are in my class. 6th graders promise before they leave for 7th grade to keep the events of the story a secret and so far, it has worked, and I've been teaching this novel study for 12 years. When 8th gr students mention their favorite 6th gr activity was reading The Giver. I just wanted to thank you for writing such a wonderful book.

My father was stationed in Hawaii during WW2. I have his album of pictures, which included some of what are titled Lowry House. I would like to share them with you, but I'm not sure how to do this.

Please reply
