The Woman Herself: Lois Lowry's Professional Website

This site includes Lowry's biography, new and noteworthy achievements, a very well kept blog, copies of her speeches, descriptions of her books (including The Giver and the other two books in the trilogy), and resources for teachers. You will be struck by how easily accessible Lowry is on this site: a visitor can respond to her blog entries or send her an email (which she seems to check and respond to quite regularly.)
