She is the recipient of a Whiting Writer’s Award, the Salon Award for Fiction, and a fellowship from the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study. She lives with her family in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she is writing a new novel.

 

Lois Lowry is a mother and grandmother and has worked as a photojournalist as well as a writer of fiction. Born in Hawaii, she grew up in Japan, Pennsylvania, and New York and attended Brown University and the University of Southern Maine. Currently she divides her time between an 18th century farmhouse in Maine and the west coast of Florida.

Lowry is twice the recipient of the Newbery Medal, given each year for the most distinguished contribution to children’s literature by an American author. Her 50+ books have been translated into more than thirty languages; several have been adapted for film and stage; and one, The Giver, has become an opera.

Burton is also the author of The New York Times best-selling books The Rural Diaries and Grimoire Girl: A Memoir of Magic and Mischief. Her most recent memoir shares how she’s creating an inheritance of mischief and magic that will outlive her and connects us to the enchantment that exists inside us all.
