Here is a problem I have, and it probably has no solution. So maybe I am looking more for sympathy than advice.

People email me through my website. It is easy to do, by clicking on "Email me" on the right hand side of the homepage. 

Those emails come every day. And I answer them, not always the day they arrive, but as soon as I can.

Every now and then, though, my reply bounces back to me as "undeliverable."  I think this is because there is a spam blocker of some sort, a filter that I can't get through, perhaps because the email is coming from a school. I always feel terrible when a reply can't be delivered, because of course the person who sent the original email thinks that I didn't respond.

Right now I am wringing my hands over a woman named Christie, who teaches two very special young girls and who asked me to send them a message.  i have tried and tried to do so. A second email came from her because she thought I hadn't answered the first.  But I have tried and tried, without success.

So: I'm sorry, Christie!  Please tell those two wonderful young girls that I tried.

Good evening! My 6th grade classes in Baltimore City just finished reading The Giver and there was some heated debate about whether Jonas actually reached Elsewhere or died. A lot of students were angry that they didn't know the answer for sure and wanted to know why Lois Lowry wrote the book like that. I told them, "I don't know, but why don't we try to ask Lois herself!" I also invited students to write you a letter which I promised to somehow get to you.

Most of my students don't have email addresses or computers at home, should I just post their comments on a blog here or email them via this website or try to mail them the old fashioned way and if so to where?! Thanks for your help, and all that you do as a writer,

-Corey

Corey, I can't reply to you personally because when you post a comment to the blog, it does not show me your email address. But you should have your students email me by clicking on EMAIL ME on the right hand side of my website's homepage. It is best if they combine their various questions into ONE email instead of sending individual messages. I get 50-60 emails a day and its really tough to respond to each one.

Hey Lois, I don't mind throwing my work email out there if you'd prefer to roll that way, cbgaber@bcps.k12.md.us

Once I've collected the letters I'll compile them and send 'em via the website. The kids will be so excited!

P.S. I can't believe Lois Lowry just communicated to me personally, I feel famous!
