**Notice of Event Suspension**

Due to regional and state-wide health concerns regarding coronavirus (COVID-19), public programming at Scripps College, including this event, has been suspended until further notice.


Lois Lowry is the godmother of dystopian fiction. Before Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games and Veronica Roth’s Divergent series, Lowry’s The Giver was captivating readers. Winner of the 1994 Newbery Medal, the book has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. Now, Lowry is back with On the Horizon, a haunting, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting story of the people whose lives were lost or forever altered by Pearl Harbor and Hiroshima. Join this living legend for a reading and conversation.
