Join Us – Lois Lowry : An Artist’s Review in Winter

Lois Lowry, Author

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.

The Louis T. Graves Memorial Public Library is proud to offer this lecture which will be held at the Community House, Temple Street, in Kennebunkport. Seating is free and open to the public, but will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please call 967-2778 for further details or visit us on the web www.graveslibrary.org. This Series is sponsored by: Kennebunk Savings Bank and The Stephen and Tabitha King Foundation.
