I finally, yesterday, finished addressing all of my Christmas cards. Then in this morning's website mail there were over 100 emails from kids who had read THE GIVER in a particular school and wanted me to answer questions.

This is SO HARD. If any teachers are reading this....please consolidate your student letters into just one so that i can answer at greater length. With more than 100 to deal with (on just one morning, and tomorrow will be another batch) I just go through and give very brief and perfunctory replies.

Here is the picture of my kitten, Lulu, that I used on many of my Christmas cards:

 

NOT A CREATURE WAS STIRRING, the caption said.

The other cards used a photo of me and my granddaughter together in Paris (with the Eiffel Tower sticking up out of the backs of our heads)

More and more people are no longer sending cards at Christmas but I do, partly because I so enjoy receiving them, and hearing news of of friends.

There is still no snow here in Massachusetts...and wasn't in Maine, where I spent part of the past week. I suppose we will be hit with a storm soon, though i hope not on December 27th, when I am flying out of here very early in the morning with some friends, headed to Guatemala for a week's vacation.

Her's a photo used on a previous year's card, of Alfie up in Maine. But if I had taken his picture in the same location—in front of the barn—when we were there last week...he would have been sitting on the bare ground.

Merry Christmas, everyone.

Perhaps the internet is killing the Christmas card tradition. Also people move so often these days it's hard to keep an updated "Rollodex" (ancient word) I like sending and getting cards. Our pile is next to the front door to go in the mailbox in the morning.

Guatemala! very nice.. I was there in the mid 90's not as a tourist but covering some sort of conflict. I took a bus to Chichicastenango which is north of Guatemala city. There I was able to do a photo essay which was all I had access to because I was run out of town by some unsavory characters who wanted nothing to do with journalists nosing around.
Here's a link to the essay (it's seems rather outdated now)

I hope I am not hijacking your blog post. But you see, my students love your writing and we have done amazing things with The Giver and soon with Number the Stars.

Are you interested in seeing some of the writing?

And, do you ever visit schools? We don't have much money but we have warm smiles. I can be reached via the email I used to register this account :D

Greg: I'm sorry, but I don't visit schools any more. I just don't seem to have the time. :( I like thinking about the warm smiles, though.
As for your students' writing: you can send it to me c/o Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Childrens' Books, 222 Berkeley Street, Boston, MA 02116. I will certainly read it but I won't be able to respond individually—just with one letter to the group.

You are my 17 year old granddaughter's favorite author. I would like to get "The Giver" signed by you for her. The FAQ on this site indicated I could send it to you for you to sign but that I need to email you first. Where can I find your email address?
