Messenger Spanish

This is a very clever bit of marketing in Spain.  The cover of the book looks, as you can see, as if it is called THE GIVER. But in much smaller print, at the top, it says (in Spanish) Book III; MESSENGER.  So it is actually the book MESSENGER, the third in the Giver trilogy.  A little deceptive?  But aside from that quibble, I do like this jacket.  Was a bit troubled, though, to leaf through the pages (I don't read Spanish) and find that the character named Kira has been re-named Nora. Wonder why. Does Kira have bad connotations in Spanish?  And I don't remember seeing a Book II, in which Kira (Nora in Spain) is the main character.  Presumably there IS a Book II (otherwise, why would there be Book III?)---but it will be very confusing to readers if the girl is called Kira in that one.

Well, there are more important things to worry about. World peace. The stock market.

Your granddaughter is such a lovely young woman--and obviously a talented photographer! Hope the rest of your time in Germany is fantastic.

I'm picturing that cemetery in the still quiet of the snow and know that it must still hurt to think of him there. He was such a very handsome "young" man.

Beautiful descriptive writing Lois. Stunningly evocative of the place and your feelings.

So happy to see you family :)
Actually, I have an urgent question for you, dear writer. Sorry that it's not related to this posting, though :)
My school had a test on your book GIVER, and there was sth I couldn't quite understand.
Were people AWARE of the phenomenon related to "wind"? I know that the Giver passing memories of 'wind' over to Jonas may give him an idea of what the "word" was. But could it be said that people in the community all 'recognized' what wind was? I mean as a sensation, a feeling. Can it be understood as a concept of "air" back and back and back, when people established the new theory by taking in the word, "air" into the phenomenon they vaguely knew as sth pleasant on a hot day, frustrating on a cold winter day?
I would really appreciate it if you could give an answer for this complicated question :)

It IS a complicated question and I'm not sure I have a satisfactory answer. The boy, Jonas, would acquire an understanding of the word "wind" because he would experience it. I imagine his comprehension would be gradual, like that of an infant experiencing the world in small stages. The people of the community would not understand the word or the concept because they would not have the experience. Their understanding of anything would be very restricted.

But according to the phrase, "opening his tunic if it was a day with breeze" in chapter 7, wouldn't the people KNOW (on the premise that Jonas is one of THE people, since ch.7 is before his memory injection;;) what the phenomenon was? I'm not saying they knew the word for it, they couldn't be aware of it-but they would feel sth different externally, wouldn't they? After all, climate control didn't get hold of wind:)
Basically, what I'm thinking is that not knowing the word for sth doesn't equal not knowing the feeling or the sensation. Please let me know if my theory(?) is right. Thank you.

p.s. I believe external sensuous cognition does not equal feelings, so what I've said above does not mean people can actually feel wind, that's been contradicted; what I've questioned is, would they KNOW externally.

Frankly, it has been 22 years since I wrote the book, I don't have it in front of me and can't remember the passage. And it is Christmas Eve, and I am traveling to be with my family. So I will answer you hastily and say yes, you are right, one can feel something without knowing what it is, or how one should react to it.

ESPN's Dan Le Betard conducted a stinging interview with MLB commissioner Rob Manfred on Wednesday,
grilling los angeles angels of anaheim jersers the commissioner on the details of the Miami Marlins sale to a group led by Derek Jeter. The conversation was contentious from the start, with Le Betard saying, "Baseball has been really bad to South Florida for many years, and I don't believe baseball deserves a single customer in South Florida," just moments before introducing the commissioner. It only got more heated from there. Le Betard bluntly asked whether or not Manfred knew of Jeter's plan to cleveland indians jersers slash the Marlins' payroll. Manfred denied having knowledge of any of Jeter's specific plans for the group while going through the approval process. "We are starting with a chicago white sox jersers lie, Rob," washington nationals jersers Le Batard said. "That's where we're starting." Manfred continued to insist that decisions such as the miami marlins jersers ones Jeter has made to cut the Marlins' budget were made at a local level, independent of his purview as commissioner. "We did not have player-specific plans from the Miami Marlins or any other team that we approve in the ownership process." On Thursday, Le Batard said during his show that he had seen the "Project Wolverine" boston red sox jersers proposal Jeter's group washington nationals jersers put together for MLB and knew the commissioner was not being truthful. This was echoed by Barry Jackson at the Miami Herald cincinnati reds jersers who reported that Jeter's plan was vetted and approved by MLB, and that that plan included slashing the team's budget from $115 million to $85 million. "A source directly involved in the Marlins sales process, after hearing the Le Batard interview, said, via text: 'Commissioner detroit tigers jersers said was not aware of [Jeter] plan to slash payroll. Absolutely not true. They request and receive the operating plan from all bidders. "'Project Wolverine [the name for Jeter's plan] called on his group to reduce payroll to $85 million. This was vetted and approved by MLB prior to approval by MLB. Every [Jeter] investor and non investor has the Wolverine financial plan of slashing payroll to $85 million.
