The next Pasco Author Lecture Series at Louis T. Graves Memorial Public
Library will feature noted children’s author Lois Lowry : An Artist’s Review in Winter. This event will be held on Sunday, February 2 at 2:00 p.m. at the Community House, Temple Street, in Kennebunkport. Lowry’s work includes the Newberry Award winning novels Number the Stars (1990) and The Giver (1994). Her work is well known for addressing challenging topics such as the Holocaust, racism, and death.
It has been several years since we have visited with Lois Lowry at Graves Library. Since
that time, she has presented us with dozens of new characters, intriguing plots, and even
a look into her personal life through her writing. In an interview conducted several years
ago, she was asked “what inspires her to become an author?” Her eloquent but simple
response… “Nothing “inspired” me to be an author. It was simply what I always wanted to do, from childhood: what I did best, loved best. If anything inspired me, it was books.”
We are thrilled that Ms. Lowry has agreed to join us for a Pasco Lecture and glad to have
her back at Graves Library once again.
