Special Author Interview - Kate DiCamillo - Two Time Newberry Medal Winner
What a blessing and honor it was to spend time with Kate DiCamillo, the author of some of my most beloved children's literature of all time. If you have a moment or an hour to spare, I ask for you to join in and listen to our conversation about writing, books, and the power of honoring our gifts. I challenge you today to live in Kate's worlds and read her phenomenal collection of children's work that will change your author life! I began with Raymie Nightingale, then the very next day made it to Louisiana's Way Home, to finish up the series with Beverly, Right Here completely taken by these characters, their lives, and the heartbeats of each one. I moved to The Tale of Despereaux, then Bink & Gollie, Mercy Watson, Leroy Ninker Saddles Up, and landed on home plate with Because of Winn-Dixie. The love I have for these books will forever be in my heart and on my lips, praising how much heartbreak, heartbeats, and hope can come from the pages within novels that truly matter to us all and can be found right here with Kate DiCamillo. Look no further. My heart is full.  To watch the YouTube interview - please click here: https://youtu.be/LqsJUAdSYQQ   Website: https://www.katedicamillo.com/ https://www.amazon.com/s?k=kate+dicamillo&ref=nb_sb_noss_2 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/KateDiCamillo/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/explore/tags/katedicamillo/ To connect with me, email at jenlowrywrites@gmail.com and find my books online at https://www.amazon.com/s?k=jen+lowry&ref=nb_sb_noss_1 Website: https://jenlowrywrites.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/jenlowrywrites/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jenlowrywrites/
