Eat & Greet with Kate DiCamillo
Kate DiCamillo is one of six children's book authors to have received the Newbery Medal twice, recognizing her books The Tale of Despereaux and Flora and Ulysses. From 2014 - 2016, DiCamillo was the National Ambassador for Young People's Literature, a literary honor presented bi-annually by the Library of Congress to an author or illustrator who has made a substantial contribution to young peoples literature. DiCamillos many books include the Mercy Watson Series and Because of Winn-Dixie, which in 2012 was ranked 30th in the top 100 all-time children's novels by School Library Journal. As popular with children as with critics, Because of Winn-Dixie has also won a number of state sponsored children's choice awards, including the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Award in Vermont and the Bluebonnet Award in Texas.
