Lois Lowry: 2009 National Book Festival
Children's author Lois Lowry appears at the National Book Festival.

September 26, 2009
-  Lois Lowry describes herself as a solitary child who lived in the world of books and my own vivid imagination. A two-time recipient of the Newbery Medal for her novels "Number the Stars" (1990) and "The Giver" (1994), Lowry conveys through her writing her passionate awareness of caring for one another in a very complex world. In her first picture book, "Crow Call" (2009), Lowry pairs with acclaimed artist Bagram Ibatoulline to deliver a timeless story about the power of a very special relationship. Set in post-World War II America and based upon events in Lowry's own childhood, "Crow Call" is a tender glimpse at 9-year-old Liz as she begins the journey of becoming reacquainted with her long-absent father after his return from the war. Lowry lives in Massachusetts.
