Happy Birthday, Kate DiCamillo!

March 25

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.

Among her many accomplishments, Kate DiCamillo is the 2014-2015 National Ambassador for Young People's Literature.  She is also the winner of this year's John Newbery Medal for Flora & Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures (Candlewick, 2013), her second Newbery Medal.

(See her PBS interview here)

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!
