Author: Kate DiCamillo

Hannah Storm interviews Kate DiCamillo on the CBS Early Show. The video is online. The video shows children lining up to have their books signed and one little girl just leans across the table to hug DiCamillo's arm. Pretty sweet!

DiCamillo's terrific sense of humor does not come through partly because of Storm's questions and the editing but it is fun to see her. I was fortunate to hear DiCamillo accept her Texas Bluebonnet Award for Because of Winn Dixie in 2002 and her speech remains one of the best "author" talks I have ever heard.

Do you have a print copy of her acceptance speech at the Texas Bluebonnet Award luncheon?

I remember afterwards people were asking for a video of her speech. Any luck contacting TLA? Did you know she is coming to Houston in a few weeks? She will be speaking for free thanks to InPrint Houston.
