Web Links & Resources:
Lois LowryThere is a lot of information about Lois Lowry on the Web:
"My books have varied in content and style. Yet it seems that all of them deal, essentially, with the same general theme: the importance of human connections...The Giver - and Gathering Blue, more recently published...speak to the same concern: the vital need of people to be aware of their interdependence, not only with each other, but with the world and its environment...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."
--From the autobiography at LoisLowry.com.
