Newbery Medalist Kate DiCamillo received the 2013 Kerlan Award on Saturday, June 8. Here is her acceptance speech, posted by the University of Minnesota. Happy watching! [Kate's speech comes after the introductions, around Minute #18.] Her Newbery was for The Tale of Despereaux.
You’ll laugh, you’ll sigh, you’ll identify. Enjoy this speech by one of my all-time favorite writers.
