An Afternoon with Kate Di Camillo
We are thrilled to present a very special event with Kate DiCamillo, beloved and bestselling children's author of many wonderful books including "Flora & Ulysses" and The "Tale of Despereaux," both of which received Newbery Medals.
Tickets are $22.00 and includes admission for two to the event, and one copy of Kate's latest picture book, La La La: A Story of Hope. A signing will follow the presentation.
Please note that there are special signing restrictions for this event. Kate will sign and personalize any number of copies of La La La. However, due to time constraints, Kate will only be able to sign one of her backlist titles per person.
In Kate's new picture book, "La La La," a little girl stands alone and sings, but hears no response. Gathering her courage and her curiosity, she skips farther out into the world, singing away to the trees and the pond and the reeds, but no song comes back to her. Day passes into night, and the girl dares to venture into the darkness toward the light of the moon, becoming more insistent in her singing, climbing as high as she can, but still there is silence in return. Dejected, she falls asleep on the ground, only to be awakened by an amazing sound. She has been heard, at last.
With the simplest of narratives and the near absence of words, Kate DiCamillo conveys a lonely child's yearning for someone who understands. With a subtle palette and captivating expressiveness, DiCamillo and illustrator Jaime Kim bring to life an endearing character and a transcendent landscape that invite readers along on an emotionally satisfying journey.
