Join the Thornbirds for a lively discussion of "The Giver," by Lois Lowry. In Jonas' world everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the Community. When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver, who holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. Copies of the book are available for check-out one month prior to the meeting. Small meeting room.
