Lowry has earned both praise and criticism with her handling of difficult subjects – racism, murder, terminal illness, and the Holocaust.
She has won two Newbery Medals, for ‘Number the Stars’ in 1990 and ‘The Giver’ in 1994. A film adaptation of the ‘The Giver’ was released in 2014. The presentation is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30pm. For additional details on this and other venues at area schools where Lowry will be presenting see truelitfest.com/schedule.
