The Giver by Lois Lowry

January 7, 2016

7:00 pm

The Giver, the 1994 Newbery Medal winner, has become one of the most influential novels of our time. The haunting story centers on twelve-year-old Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. The 2014 film adaptation stars Jeff Bridges and Meryl Streep.
