4A FEW NOTES ABOUT THE AUTHORLOWRY, LOIS (1937-).Lois Lowry is the author of over twenty juvenile novels, and has contributedstories, articles, and photographs to many leading periodicals.Her literary awards are numerous andextensive.She once said that she gauges her success as a writer by her ability to "help adolescents answertheir own questions about life, identity, and human relationships."Lois Lowry was born on March 20, 1937, in Honolulu, Hawaii.At the time of her birth, Lowry's father,Robert, a career army dentist and officer, was stationed near Pearl Harbor.The family separated with theonset of World War II, and Lowry spent the duration of the war with her mother's family in the Amishcountry of Pennsylvania.Much later, Lowry's wartime experience inspired her fourth novel,AutumnStreet.As an author, she has often translated her life into fiction for the purpose of helping others who mayhave suffered under similar circumstances.Memories of her childhood, as well as her experiences as a parent, have led Lowry to her most popularcharacter, Anastasia Krupnik, the spunky, rebellious, and irreverent adolescent who stars in a series ofbooks that began in 1979.The broad audience appeal of the first Anastasia book prompted Lowry towrite another novel featuring her heroine, "I have the feeling she's going to go on forever--or until I get sickof her, which hasn't happened yet." Subsequent Anastasia titles number nine atthecurrent time.In 1990- Lowry received her highest honors.She was awarded the Newbery Medal, National JewishBook Award, and Sidney Taylor Award from the National Jewish Libraries, all for her World War II taleof Nazi-occupied Denmark,Number the Stars.In this novel she created suspense and tension withoutwavering from the viewpoint of Annemarie, a child who shows the true meaning of courage.Based on afactual account, the inspiration for this novel came from the stories told to Lowry by a friend who washerself a child in Copenhagen during the long years of the German occupation.
