Off the Shelf: Read “The Giver,” and see MLC production

February 20, 2014
By Kris Wiley - Assistant Library Director , The Journal

I was a latecomer to the young adult book "The Giver" by Lois Lowry, and I checked it out only because Sue O. wouldn't stop talking about it when we worked together. Once I started it, I couldn't put it down, and I sure knew why Sue was raving. Beautiful writing, compelling characters, enough suspense to keep a reader guessing - all wrapped up in a dystopian setting. And Lowry published the book in 1993, long before dystopia became cool.
