The Giver: An inside look at the SCRIPT


Have you ever seen what a script page looks like compared to the original book? While reading, be sure to ask yourself: 

  1. What descriptive wording does Lois Lowry use?
  2. How does Lowry’s writing compare to that of our screenwriter, Michael Mitnick?
  3. How does Mitnick shape his wording as compared to Lowry? How do their audiences differ? Based on that, why might the shape of their writing be different?
