Fiction, Fantasy & Adventure, Mac's Book Club for girls will discuss Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry on Saturday, November 8th at 10:30 a.m.
Gathering Blue is the companion book to The Giver and second in the Giver Quartet which continues with Messenger and Son.
Lame and suddenly orphaned, Kira is mysteriously removed from her squalid village to live in the palatial Council Edifice, where she is expected to use her gifts as a weaver to do the bidding of the all-powerful Guardians. "Lowry returns to the metaphorical future world of her Newbery-winning The Giver. . . . Plenty of material for thought and discussion here, plus a touch of magic and a tantalizing hint about the previous book's famously ambiguous ending." (Kirkus Reviews)
