Today's post is a departure from our usual format, but we cannot let March 25, pass by without a nod to author, Kate DiCamillo. She does not write about influential or inspiring women in history, but Kate DiCamillo is someone about whom such books will be written.

She has written more than 15 books, and books have been written about her. Whether it's Mercy Watson, The Tale of Despereaux, Because of Winn-Dixie, Bink and Gollie, or The Magician's Elephant, everyone has a Kate DiCamillo favorite.
Happy Birthday, Kate DiCamillo!
