6PM THURSDAY, OCTOBER 11
Offsite | Lois Lowry: Son
Lois Lowry
DOBSON HIGH SCHOOL AUDITORIUM
1501 W. Guadalupe Road
Mesa, AZ 85202 (google map)
Doors open at 5:30pm.


Lois Lowry, the two-time Newbery Award-winning author of The Giver and Number the Stars, visits with Son, the final installment of the Giver Quartet.

Told in three separate story lines, Lowry's Son combines elements from the first three novels in her Giver Quartet--The Giver, winner of the 1994 Newbery Medal, Gathering Blue, and Messenger--into a thought-provoking narrative that wrestles with ideas of human freedom. Thrust again into the dark, claustrophobic world of The Giver, readers will meet an intriguing new heroine, fourteen-year-old Claire. Jonas from The Giver is here too, and Kira, the heroine of Gathering Blue. In a final clash between good and evil, a new hero emerges.
