Downloadable / Printable Version
All of her books are not like this one. She has a series of books about a girl named Anastasia Krupnik. She also has many stand-alone books about many different characters in many different situations. Her books tend to illustrate for us the importance of human connections. She has chosen a number of varied and important topics in her novels, including: cancer, the Holocaust, mental illness, adoption, and in this title, future societies. She stated, "I try, through writing, to convey my passionate awareness that we live intertwined on this planet and that our future depends upon our caring more, and doing more, for one another" .
She has written two books since she wrote this one that will surely interest readers who like The Giver. They are Gathering Blue and Messenger. The Giver, Gathering Blue and Messenger are a trilogy. Each is about a different culture, different than ours and different from each other.
Lois Lowry is now a grandmother. She lives in Massachusetts and has a vacation home in New Hampshire.
