Maine Calling Book Club: "The Giver" by Lois Lowry


The Maine Calling book club reconvenes to discuss Lois Lowry's 'The Giver.'  It's the story of twelve year old Jonas who lives in a dystopian future where there is no war, pain, fear - and no color or emotion.  Jonas's rebels against his job as holder of memories of both the joy - and the pain - of life. 

Guests:  Anne Miller, doctoral student at UMaine.  She's been an English teacher, library/media specialist, and literacy specialist and has taught Young Adult literature at UMaine.
Karyn Field, 8th grade teacher at Reeds Brook Middle School in Hampden, ME.

Elona Bodwell, 7th grader at Middle School of the Kennebunks.
