Dwelling in Possibility: A Lecture by Author Lois Lowry

October 3, 2020 | 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee and the Irma Morter Planning Team are pleased to present the annual Irma Morter lecture with Lois Lowry, author of more than 40 books for children and young adults, including the New York Times bestselling Giver Quartet and popular Anastasia Krupnik series.

Her lecture, “Dwelling in Possibility,” will explore what strength, wisdom, and energy we can gain at this moment when we are confined to our dwelling places.  Please join us for this lively virtual gathering.

Ms. Lowry has received countless honors, among them the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award, the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Award, the California Young Reader’s Medal, and the Mark Twain Award. She received Newbery Medals for two of her novels, Number the Stars and The Giver. Her first novel, A Summer to Die, was awarded the International Reading Association’s Children’s Book Award. Ms. Lowry lives in Maine.

 Our friends at Boswell Book Company (414) 332-1181, can provide you with any of her available books.

The annual lecture is supported by the bequest from Irma Morter. The opportunity to walk the path of personal reflection and finding your best place in the work to be done, expands upon the wishes of Irma Morter’s endowment message, that is, the vital importance of “Individual Responsibility.”
