Book Discussion Guide: The Giver by Lois Lowry (Digital Download)
Jonas lives in an almost perfect society where every citizen is a productive, contributing member. As Jonas awaits his Ceremony of Twelve, where he will be given an assignment in the community, he is apprehensive. To his surprise, Jonas is selected as The Receiver of Memory, the adviser of the Committee and the elders of the Community. In order to advise well, Jonas will draw from his experience of the memories of the past—memories like pain, famine, and war—so that the society can keep these things from ever happening again. When Jonas discovers a dreadful secret about the society, he must make a difficult decision in order to save his community. The Giver is the first book in the Giver Quartet.
