We are delighted to welcome one of the world’s best storytellers to Dublin!
Kate’s books evoke wonder in every reader, young and old. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear one of the greats of children’s literature! Kate DiCamillo is one of America’s most beloved writers, with almost 30 million books in print worldwide. She is a former National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature, and twice winner of the Newbery Medal, for The Tale of Despereaux and Flora & Ulysses.
She grew up in Florida and moved to Minnesota in her twenties, where homesickness and a bitter winter led her to write Because of Winn-Dixie, which went on to become a runaway bestseller. She now lives in Minneapolis, where she faithfully writes two pages a day, five days a week.
‘Hands down, the biggest thrill is to get a letter from a kid saying, “I loved your book. Will you write me another one?”’ Kate DiCamillo
“The world is dark, and light is precious. Come closer, dear reader. You must trust me. I am telling you a story.” Kate DiCamillo, The Tale of Despereaux
