National Ambassador Kate DiCamillo Visits Bainbridge Island, WA
At the event, DiCamillo read from her Newbery-Honor winning book Because of Winn-Dixie and shared her passion for books with local students. She also took time to answer questions from fans, with whom she has found a strong connection.
DiCamillo said she’s enjoyed her ambassador tour and the thoughtful connections her young readers have made between stories. She noted she often keeps ‘extraordinary letters’ from her readers who have told her what a difference her books have made to them. (Bainbridge Island Review)
