A Treat for You: Speech by Kate DiCamillo

Here’s a treat for you!

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.

    WoW!! I think I will listen to parts of it over & over again as well. So inspirational. Even the q & a at the end. I read your Be a Friend blog post first & what you said about -is there something you fear & journaling to figure it out, -really resonated with me. Then I watched this and now I ‘see’ her journey and doubts and how she ‘did the work.’ Thanks SO much for sharing it!!

      Liz, I felt exactly the same way, listening to Kate’s talk. She is so open and genuine, while funny too! I appreciated her honesty!
