The Hudson Area Library Book Group has chosen to read The Giver by Lois Lowry for their September meeting. Discussion will be held at the library on Wednesday, September 24th at 4:30pm. Stop by the Hudson Area Library or call 828-1792 to order a copy of the book.
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. Jonas’s world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear of pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community. When Jonas turns 12 he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.
All are welcome! Contact the library at 518-828-1792 or email Sharon Getty at BookGroup@hudsonarealibrary.org for info.
