"The Giver"


Before the dystopian world of Katniss, there was “Sameness”.  The movie version of Lois Lowry’s beloved and banned Newberry Award winning YA novel, The Giver, opens in theaters today.  Some fans of the book are concerned over changes that were made for the big screen (Ms Lowry was consulted throughout and says she’s pleased). Will you see the movie, revisit the novel, or read the other books in the series (Gathering Blue, Messenger, and Son)?
