Kate DiCamillo
Featured Author
Kate DiCamillo is one of the most read and best loved children’s authors of our time. Her remarkable writing career kicked off twenty years ago. DiCamillo grew up in Florida, but moved to Minnesota in her twenties. Homesickness and a bitter winter led her to write "Because of Winn-Dixie" — her first published novel, which became a runaway bestseller. Currently boasting 12 million copies in print, "Winn-Dixie" celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2020. Since her chart-topping debut, DiCamillo has explored settings as varied as a medieval castle and a magician’s theater while continuing to enjoy great success, winning two Newbery Medals and being named National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. Kate DiCamillo’s books’ themes of hope and belief amid impossible circumstances and their messages of shared humanity and connectedness have resonated with readers of all ages around the world.
