Lois Lowry’s breakthrough dystopian novel, The Giver has been read by millions of people around the world. It left many with lingering questions: What happened to Jonas and Gabriel? Is a perfect society possible? What does it mean to live a complete life? With Son, Lowry continues to wrestle with the idea of human freedom while completing the story of Jonas and the baby he rescued.

Son combines elements from the first three novels in her Giver Quartet—The Giver (1994 Newbery Medal winner), Gathering Blue, and Messenger—into a breathtaking, thought-provoking narrative that wrestles with ideas of human freedom and the bonds of love. Thrust again into the chilling world of The Giver, readers will meet an intriguing new heroine, fourteen-year-old Claire.

Join Lois Lowry to hear her speak about Son, the other books of The Giver Quartet, and to have a chance to ask her your questions live!
