All of Lois Lowry’s novels focus on one central theme: the importance of human connections.
With this theme as a guide, Lois Lowry has written books that have influenced generations of readers, teaching them about complex issues such as racism, terminal illness and the Holocaust. On the release of Son, the fourth book in The Giver quartet, Lois Lowry joins Anna Holmes and Lizzie Skurnick in conversation about her life and career and the impact she has had on a generation of young adult readers who she taught, through her books, to question authority and who are now all grown up.
Lois Lowry is the author of over 40 young adult novels, including the Anastasia series and Newberry Medal winners Number the Stars and The Giver. Her most recent book is Son, the fourth book in The Giver quartet.
Anna Holmes is a writer and editor whose work has appeared in such publications at The New York Times, The Washington Post, The New Yorker (online), Sports Illustrated and Entertainment Weekly. In 2007, she founded the very popular women's website Jezebel.com and is the editor of the upcoming Book of Jezebel. She lives by the law of Anastasia Krupnik and spends way too much time on Twitter.
Lizzie Skurnick is the author of Shelf Discovery: The Teen Classics We Never Stopped Reading and columnist for Jezebel.com’s Fine Lines, as well as the author of ten teen books in the Sweet Valley High, Love Stories and Alias series. She’s on the board of the National Book Critics Circle and has written on books and culture extensively for the New York Times Book Review, Times Sunday Styles, The LA Times, NPR.org, The Washington Post and many other publications.
