Author: Kate DiCamillo

Nice interview with Kate DiCamillo in the Miami Herald. With the movie adaptation of her book, Because of Winn-Dixie, arriving at theaters near you soon, I imagine there will be more articles and interviews with her. The best news is more books are on the way.
Despite all the distractions brought on by her phenomenal success, DiCamillo has finished a fourth novel, The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane, which will be published in 2006, as well as a series of short chapter books for beginning readers, and two picture books.

I heard DiCamillo's acceptance speech when Because of Winn-Dixie won the Texas Library Association Bluebonnet award. She is an engaging and thought provoking speaker.
