The Book Was Better: Lois Lowry’s The Giver

The Giver will be in theaters this Friday, August 15! Did you read the book in middle school? Did you ever image Jeff Bridges (the Dude) and Meryl Steep (fictional Julia Child) would star in it?! Me neither. If you want to re-read The Giver, or try it for the first time, we have two physical copies and a couple Axis 360 eBooks available as well.

PZ7 .L9673 GI 1993 (Conway and Georgetown Campuses)

The Giver, the 1994 Newbery Medal winner, has become one of the most influential novels of our time. The haunting story centers on twelve-year-old Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. Lois Lowry has written three companion novels to The Giver, including Gathering Blue, Messenger, and Son.
