Video of the Week: Lois Lowry Talks About SON

Thanks to @NMHKids for the link.

Son, the fourth and final book in Lois Lowry's Giver Quartet, will be released on October 2, 2012. If you live in the Chicagoland area, she will be at Anderson's Bookshop on October 4. I believe the event will be held at North Central College. Please call Anderson's for more information.

Borrow Son from your school or public library. Whenever possible, please support independent bookshops.


  1. I am SO excited to read Son and see her in October! The Giver was the first book I ever considered a "favorite" when I was a child, so I'm really excited to finally see the end of the story.

  2. I like how, in this video, Lois Lowry thinks aloud about what her characters want. So often, students write fantasy books with magical settings and futuristic weaponry. We help them think in terms of characters who want something - building the fantasy around the character.

    This will be a great addition to my lessons. Thanks!
