Lois Lowry has written more than thirty books for readers of all ages, including the Newbery Medal recipients Number the Stars and The Giver. She has received countless honors, among them the Boston Globe–Horn Book Award, the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Award, the California Young Reader Medal, the Mark Twain Award, and the Margaret A. Edwards Award, which honors an author for her lifetime contribution to young adult literature. Ms. Lowry now divides her time between Cambridge, Massachusetts, and a 1768 farmhouse in Maine.
As a child, and later as an adult, Lois Lowry moved with her family all over the world. Strong family ties and the leaving behind of people and places she came to love play a central theme in much of her work. Lois Lowry’s rich life story is best told in her own words (of course).
