Witt Lowry may have graduated with a degree in graphic design, but it wasn't until he decided to rap for a career that he found his true passion. Mark Laurence Richard, Jr. chose his stage name as a combination of the word "witty" and a spin on his middle name. Naturally, his rhymes convey a quick wit and clever phrases (as he wanted his moniker to suggest). Lois Lowry is known for her versatility and invention as a writer. She was born in Hawaii and grew up in New York, Pennsylvania, and Japan. After several years at Brown University, she turned to her family and to writing. She is the author of more than thirty books for young adults, including the popular Anastasia Krupnik series.

An uncontested master of children’s literature and a two-time Newbery Award winner, Lois Lowry is renowned for her ability to interweave difficult topics with approachable narratives, which she does expertly in Number the Stars and the Giver quartet. She has also written several lighthearted books, including the Anastasia and Sam Krupnik series. In a radical departure from her realistic fiction and comic chronicles of Anastasia, Lowry creates a chilling, tightly controlled future society where all controversy, pain, and choice have been expunged, each childhood year has its privileges and responsibilities, and family members are selected for compatibility.

  It became the story of the bond between a mother and her missing son, the story of every parent who has lost a child. Not a sequel, but a conclusion. I hope it will provide the answers that readers have wanted. This material may not be used without the express written consent of Lois Lowry. Hear Lois Lowry share the fascinating story of her name.   The story is as much about Lowry as it is about the “collective and individual anxieties of the age,” and it was a story Lowry worked on repeatedly during his life. Early versions were published in literary magazines, and Lowry eventually spliced it together into a novella he thought too “gruesome” to publish in his lifetime, though he.
