Meet acclaimed children’s author Lois Lowry at Cool Brains! Inprint Readings for Young People
Lois Lowry is the celebrated young adult author of over 40 books, including Number the Stars and The Giver. Nearly 15 years after the release of The Giver, Lois Lowry has published Son, the fourth and final book of The Giver series. Son brings together characters from the previous three stories – The Giver, Gathering Blue, and Messenger – to tell a story about the significance of human connection. Kirkus Review calls Son a book “written with powerful, moving simplicity…. As the final volume in this iconic quartet, it holistically reunites characters, reprises provocative sociopolitical themes, and offers a transcending message of tolerance and hope. Bravo!”
The event will take place on Sunday, October 14, 2012, at Johnston Middle School, 10410 Manhattan Drive (77096), at 3 p.m. (doors open at 2:30). Admission is free and open to the public. Lowry will make a presentation about her new book Son and will take questions from the audience. A book sale and signing will follow, giving families a chance to visit with the author.
