Lois Lowry appears at the 2012 Library of Congress National Book Festival.
Speaker Biography: "From the time I was 8 or 9, I wanted to be a writer," says Lois Lowry. "Writing was what I liked best in school; it was what I did best in school." Although her books vary in content and style, Lowry believes they all deal with the same general theme: the importance of human connections. In "Gathering Blue" (Houghton Mifflin), the two-time Newbery-winning author challenges readers to envision what the world could become. Lowry's new novel is "Son."
