Lowry Speaks to Students at Library of Congress – WP
Lois Lowry speaks to students about how her book, The Giver, became a movie!
Students share their experiences reading The Giver and express excitement to see their favorite parts come to life on screen:
“‘Reading ‘The Giver’ was very thought-provoking for me,’ said Eleanor Rothera, a sixth-grader at Calverton School in Huntingtown, Maryland. ‘It made me realize how precious our memories and freedoms are.’”
“Eliza Jones, a fifth-grader at Hyde-Addison Elementary School in Northwest Washington, is eager to view her favorite part of the book. It will be interesting to see how the film ‘builds suspense when the Chief Elder skips over Jonas’s name during the [jobs] ceremony,’ she said.”
